The Reservoir Loop Walk at Highland Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is an easy flat walk/hike that loops around the Highland Park reservoir.

One of the best walks/hikes in the park, you get views of the entrance to Highland Park, the fountain, the adjacent skyscraper apartment building, and various views of the park depending on the season.

Dogs are not permitted on this trail since the reservoir is a public water supply.

Water source: There's a running water fountain along the trail during warmer months and can often be found running during colder months too, surprisingly.

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!️
