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.

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!️
