“The longest singletrack trail in Highland Park.
— Ben Voytko
Need to Know
Storm damage including trees down across trail and major washout below dog park.
The Overlook Trail
is one of the longest sections of singletrack in Highland Park. It's easy to connect to from the Bigelow Trail Extension
to create a nice ride. It also connects to the Zoo Trail
, making it easy to connect to One Wild Place to climb back to the top of the park on the road.
The trail loops back on the lower section. You can also connect back to the main trail and climb back up or take the Overlook Trail to Mayor's Trail Connector
to access the Mayor's Trail
and The Oval cycling track along Washington Blvd.
There is a nice overlook point where you can see the Allegheny River valley around the first bend in the trail if you're coming from the lake/pool area.
