The Turkey Run Trail at Emerald View Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.4 mile one-way trail that starts on the Emerald View Trail and connects back to it. Parking can be found at the large lot next to Olympia Park at the end of Hallock St. Follow the Emerald View Trail until you see the sign for the Turkey Run Trail - take a left-hand turn and continue following this trail until you reach the Emerald View Trail again.

Sights and waterfalls: For 'views' there are some hillsides across the way that you can see, but nothing special. For interesting sights, there are some old building foundations and a seasonal small waterfall that cascades down the hillside during the wetter months.

Dogs and biking are both allowed on this trail.

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!️
