The Red Loop Trail in Deer Lakes Park, Tarentum, PA, is an easy 1.8 mile hike through the woods.

During the summer, the 2nd half of the trail (from the north side to east side) has a lot more brush and thorns. West and south sides of the loop are more open.

When following this trail, do not get confused by the farmer's trail that leads from Deer Lakes Park into the field. If you've hiked into the farmer's field, turn back and look for the trail immediately on the edge of the field where the field meets the park's woods.

The Eastern third of the loop was overgrown and had multiple downed trees. It may be easier to take the outer loop detour that goes over Bakerstown Rd.

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!️
