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.

Before you leave...

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. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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 is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
