The Tranquil Trail at Frick Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is an easy 2.6 mile out-and-back trail that leads from the northern section of Frick park (near Reynolds St and S Homewood Ave) down to the southern end of Frick park (near I-376).

The trail is mostly flat with an incline near the northern section. This is definitely one of the best hiking trails within Pittsburgh and Frick Park, but is often heavily-trafficked including an abundance of dog walkers. If you're looking for seclusion, this trail is not for you.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

The parking coordinates listed will lead hikers to the southern terminus lot, which is large. On the north end (where this recording beings), street parking can be found along Reynolds St near the intersection with S Homewood Ave.

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 / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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 is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
