The Wetlands Trail at Harrison Hills Park, PA, is a 2.3 mile loop hike and one of the best trails in the park.

Despite its name, this trail has more to offer than some of the shorter trails at Harrison Hills. Since the trail encompasses the central area of the park, you wind in and out of different types of forests and some open meadows as well. The trail ascends and descends hills from time to time, but for the most part it's an easy hike.

Vista Point
There's a vista point of the Allegheny River along the way that technically lies along the Scout's Trail, but hikers can walk over easily from the Wetland Trail to get a view.

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!️
