The Queen Maple Trail at Boyce Mayview Park in Upper Saint Clair, Pennsylvania is a difficult 0.25-mile one-way trail that features some old growth trees and large rocks along the trail named Vision Rocks.

Hike Description
This hike begins at the western trailhead, located along the Birds Meadow Drive, and heads uphill, climbing the entire way to reach the opposite end of this trail. The trail immediately crosses a small footbridge before heading up a skinny path that heads up the hill. Along the way, hikers will pass some old growth trees which tower over the trail.

Vision Rocks
Around mile 0.15 hikers will reach the point-of-interest called Vision Rocks which is just a section of large boulders that stick out from the trail. Hikers will also find an obstructed view through the trees at Vision Rocks.

Old Growth Trees
Along this trail are at least a couple of old growth trees. One tree I photographed with my backpack at the base - I believe this is an old growth Maple, hence the trail name.

Pets
Dogs are allowed on this trail.

Parking
Hikers will find parking at the coordinates provided along Birds Meadow Drive, right off of Boyce Road in Upper St. Clair. The parking lot is large enough to fit about a dozen vehicles.

Biking
Biking is not allowed along this trail.

Wildflowers
During the Spring (approx. mid-April) this trail usually has some nice wildflowers like Trout Lily and Trillium.

Connecting Trails
This trail connects with Birds Meadow Drive, Many Habitats Trail, Sylvan Ridge 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, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. 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!
