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.

Biking
Mountain biking is permitted along this trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
