The White Trail at Deer Lakes Park, Tarentum, PA, is a moderate 7.9 mile out-and-back hike that starts on the west side of the park and follows the southern and eastern perimeter to end at the Orange Loop Trail.
It's 3.75 - 3.9 miles one-way depending on if you continue hiking toward Kurn rd on the eastern side. You can create an alternative route by hiking from the Orange Loop down Kurn road to the parking lot for ~5.5 miles instead of 7.9.
While this is one of the longer trails at Deer Lakes Park, it's likely one of the better trails there. The trail weaves in and out of different types of forests and cuts across a secluded field in the southern section of the park. You'll likely see deer and other animals on this trail since it's very lightly trafficked.
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 / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
