The Deer Lakes Park Lake Loop Trail in Tarentum, Pennsylvania is an easy 1 mile paved trail that runs around the two main lakes along Kurn Rd. The trail is flat and usually popular for dog walking and fishing. You can park at the main parking lot, along Kurn Rd, directly between the two lakes to form a loop from the trail.

Waterfalls: Along the eastern portion of the trail, there's a waterfall that lies about 100 feet off the trail. The creek feeds into the eastern lake, so follow the creek to the waterfall. You should be able to hear it from the trail as well.

The upper lake seems often overlooked. Tricky trail close to waters edge. A bit challenging if snowy or muddy.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
