Runner Notes

Challenging for it's length. Watch out for slippery slopes on the front third.

Description

The trailheads are located at the entrance to Mt. Lebanon Public Works Yard and the end of Driftwood Drive. The trail begins with a decent hill at the public work's trailhead which plateaus into a shaded singletrack running south.

After a quarter mile, the woods open up, and the trail bends west. Then the trail descends to a creek via a switchback, crosses a bridge, and climbs the other side with large, railroad tie-style steps. The trail continues along a ridge overlooking Painters Run Road before snaking back into the woods. It passes a community fire pit before turning north. The rest of the trail varies in terrain every 50 yards, keeping it interesting.

Flora & Fauna

There are a few areas surrounded by dense undergrowth, but the trail is well maintained. Birds and rabbits are common, deer less so.
