“A technical, fun and rocky trail with short climbs and steep descents.”
— Jamie Pfaeffle
Start by Pie Traynor Field. Access trail just off of South Ridge Road across the street from Sharon Shelter and behind the Deer Browse Shelters. Look for white blazes on trees and follow them.
Cross the first fire road and ride over the rooted area between the trees. When you encounter the second fire road, ride up the fire road following the white blazes, until you come to a gate on left. Ride around the gate and pass by the Sand Cliff area on the right. Enter the woods and follow the white blazes with orange dots. Then look for white blazes with red dots and finally, white blazes with blue dots to end up near the Pie Traynor lot.
There are many rocks and trees to go over on this trail, several stream crossings and lots of roots. It is a technical trail and a favorite of North Park mountain bikers. It was installed by Denny and improved by Trail Pittsburgh in the mid 2000's. It is one of the best North Park trails to ride with your fat bike in the winter. Enjoy!
