The Zigzag Trail at Schenley Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a moderate 0.4-mile one-way hike that leads from the Junction Hollow Trail, uphill, to the Bridle Trail.

This is not a difficult trail, but it is uphill almost the entire time as you hike switchbacks to reach the top of the hill. Follow the yellow blazes (hanging plastic strips).

Biking and dogs are allowed on this 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!
