Dogs (leashed)


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.
