The Spicebush Loop Trail at Harrison Hills Park in Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania is a moderate 1.3-mile trail through the central part of the park.

This recording follows the trail counter-clockwise, heading west first. Heading west from the parking lot is more difficult than heading east at the beginning since there's a moderate-grade hill right off the bat. After hiking up the first hill, the trail will mostly flatten out and head back downhill towards parking with a few ascents along the way.

On the very far west side of the trail, this trail overlaps with the Scout's Trail, so you'll be following white and red blazes for a short while.

You can also find the Creekside Trail and the Woodlands Trail next to the parking lot, so be sure to check those out while you're there.

Follow the white blazes to complete the loop. 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!️
