The Orange Loop Trail at Hartwood Acres Park in Indiana Township, Pennsylvania is a moderate 1.2-mile trail along fields and woods through the eastern side of the park.

This trail includes plenty of ascents and descents which makes for a great trail for a workout. The trailhead can be found just east of the main parking lot and immediately heads downhill, with some short hills in between. Once you reach the bottom of the hill, the trail starts to climb back up to the parking lot at a moderate grade, but the hike uphill is just over a half-mile.

Follow the orange blazes to stay on the trail. Dogs and biking are both allowed on this trail.

Parking: Parking can be found at the main parking lot for the Hartwood Acres Mansion.

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!️
