Harrison Hills Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"As hidden as any park can be in one of the state’s most populous counties, Harrison Hills offers some wonderful scenery and some truly challenging walking. The eastern end of the Rachel Carson Trail—a 35.7-mile pathway across the county—begins here and when connected with some other park trails, allows you to get in a good loop hike. Wildlife, particularly white-tailed deer, abounds here.
The portion of this hike that follows the Rachel Carson Trail has some serious drop-offs. Be especially careful with children here. Despite having its share of playgrounds, picnic areas, restrooms, and other facilities, Harrison Hills Park is considered the “greenest”—i.e., least developed—of Allegheny County’s parks."
