The Orange & Yellow Blaze Trail at North Park in Wexford, Pennsylvania is an easy 1 mile out-and-back hike through the western portion of the park and through an amazing evergreen forest. This trail may be overlooked and so lightly-trafficked that you thought there must be better trails at North Park, but this is one of the best trails at the park due to its seclusion and evergreens.
You can hop on the trail at two different points, but this GPS data starts at the intersection of Gass Rd and Kummer Rd in Wexford, PA - there's a nicely sized pull-off area for parking here. Follow the yellow blazes (faintly highlighted orange behind them) all the way until you reach the far-side of the North Park Horse Show Ring. You can also park at the Horse Show Ring and hike north too.
In the southern section of the trail, it splits into two - if you stay left and go directly into the field, the trail seems to end; however, if you stay right and continue following the blazes, it'll spit you out at the backside of the Horse Show Ring, so you can make a small loop in this field to head back.
Note: the blazes are not exactly Orange + Yellow Dot - it's more yellow blazes wit faint orange paint behind them. These blazes are set to match the North Park trail map PDF.
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. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I 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.
