The Zoo Trail at Highland Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a moderate 1 mile out-and-back trail that leads from the pool area over to the corner of Butler Street and One Wild Place and back.

This trail can also be hiked as a 0.5-mile one-way trail and can be considered easy if heading downhill from the park down to Butler Street, but hikers exploring trails at Highland Park will find this trail does not connect to any other trails to form a loop at the far terminus.

The trail is labeled moderate, but it's probably easy for the regular hiker. The trail is fairly well maintained and moderately trafficked since people tend to use this trail as a shortcut through the park.

Pets
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

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 / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
