“A nice woodsy singletrack with a small lake and waterfall, close to downtown Pittsburgh.”— Tomas Castillo
Race - Jun 29, 2019
The Blue Loop is fairly flat and winds on until you encounter the Green Loop or Valley Trail off to the right. Head down and at the bottom you'll see the waterfall (about 1 mile in), and then continue on the Green Loop along the Valley Trail. Once you've gotten a nice climb in on the Green, you'll be on the upper part of the Valley Trail. There is a split in the trail about 0.5 miles after the climb - stay to the right. Continue on until you reach the end and the trail comes to a tee - head left and up. This puts you on the Purple Loop briefly.
You'll continue on the Purple Loop until reaching the Yellow Trail on the right. Gallop through the rooty singletrack until you reach what seems like a fire road and head left. At the bottom of the fire road, you can veer to the left just a little when a trail opens up to the left, but keep going straight past the Purple Loop and into the Yellow Trail. If you've gotten to the park road, you've gone too far - you should be on singletrack next to the road.
From here, follow the trail until it comes to a tee. The Yellow trail only has one tee, so take it to the left, which takes you down to the road. Take a left on the road and right onto the Red Trail. Once on the Red Trail, it's fairly smooth sailing. You'll get to enjoy the ups and downs of the coal filled hills, and a few creek crossings.
There is a tee in the red, about 1.5 miles in on the Red Trail, where you'll take a right and go uphill. Once on that portion of the trail, you'll come to a clearing where you'll head down towards the Lake Loop. If you come across an old oil well, you stayed on the Red Trail- enjoy it, but you missed a turn! If you made it to the lake, that's the fun part, so enjoy that even more!
The lake loop eventually meets back up with the Red Trail after a grueling, long climb. Take the Red back until it opens back up to the main part of the park, and cross the road to find the Blue Loop and you're home!
