Trail Notes

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. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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! ✌
