The Grandview Park Loop Trail at Grandview Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a 0.6-mile moderate and paved trail with an amazing lookout point with views of downtown.

This trail starts at the main entrance to Grandview Park along Bailey Ave and heads to the lookout point first. The trail then runs through the park and ends at McLain Street before heading back. This recording follows the staircase and stays left at the fork in the trail while heading back to the western entrance. This southern section of trail has a steep grade, hence the moderate difficulty. For an easier hike, plan an out-and-back trip along the main trail instead.

Amenities: Grandview Park has basketball courts and a playground next to the McLain Street entrance. Water fountains can also be found within the park. Benches can be found near the lookout point and higher up on the hill from the lookout with even better views of Pittsburgh.

Parking: Parking can be found along Bailey Avenue next to the park. There is no parking in Grandview Park.

Pets: Dogs are allowed on this trail.

Biking: Biking is allowed on the lower trail since the upper trails have stairs.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
