The Bridle Trail at Schenley Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a moderate 1.4-mile one-way trail that leads around the southern side of the park and ends at the Oval Trail.
The trail has various views of downtown Pittsburgh and the surrounding southern hills of the city, especially when the leaves are not on the trees. You can usually get a glimpse of the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh as well.
This trail connects to the Zigzag Trail about half-way through the trek, which leads to the western side of Schenley Park. You can also hop on the Vietnam Veterans Trail at the far north end of this trail or you can hop on the Upper Panther Hollow Trail near the northwest section of the trail.
Difficulty: This trail is rated as moderate due to the steep hill near the end of the trail where it leads up to the Oval Trail. Otherwise, this trail is generally flat and considered easy.
Dogs and biking are both allowed on this trail.
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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.
