The Saddle Trail in Emerald View Park, Pittsburgh, PA, is a 2.4 mile loop hike with views of downtown Pittsburgh and the Monongahela River.

The trail is not marked very well, with no blazes to follow. Part of the GPS data listed here is slightly off and is missing the section that passes through the woods below the open field along William St.

The beginning of the hike is straight up Mount Washington for the first 0.4 - 0.6 miles before the hike levels out at the street.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We 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.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
