The Gas Well Trail in Penn Hills Community Park, Verona, PA, is a moderate 1.3 mile hike.

The trail starts along Plum creek and follows the creek for about 0.5 mile or so, before shooting up a large hill. You hike up the hill for about 0.2 miles before the trail starts to level out a bit more. On top of the hill, you'll find at least 2 gas wells, currently active. In the fall, there are some areas with nice views of the surrounding hills from breaks within the trees.

The trail finally descends back into Penn Hills Community Park near the baseball field. You'll have to walk an extra 0.2 miles to complete the loop for 1.5 miles or so.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
