The Trillium Trail at Boyce Mayview Park in Upper Saint Clair, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.5-mile one-way trail that features wildflowers during the Spring like endless Trillium and an abundance of Trout Lily. The trail also features an obstructed view of the Chartiers Creek.

Hike Description
This hike begins at the eastern trailhead for the Trillium Trail and heads west along the trail before reaching Birds Meadow Drive. Hikers will find the trail, most times of the year, does not have much to see other than a small obstructed view of Chartiers Creek below. During mid-April, this trail is popping with wildflowers, so much so that I personally have never seen so many Trillium in one place. We found literally hundreds of thousands of Trillium growing up and down the slopes of the hill along this trail. Along with Trillium, hikers should be able to find plenty of yellow Trout Lily growing off the trail as well.

Eventually the trail will reach the Duckbill Trail - a loop that encompasses a large swamp area - here, stay left two times in a row to hike back uphill toward the Queen Maple Trail, where this trail ends.

Dogs are not allowed on this trail.

Hikers will find parking at the coordinates provided, right off of Morton Road in Upper St. Clair.

Biking is allowed along this trail.

During the Spring (approx. mid-April) this trail usually has endless Trillium wildflowers and a bunch of Trout Lily.

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.

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.
