Boyce Park | Green Trail

2.25 miles | Easy-to-moderate    Download this trail guide

Park at the Boyce Park Soccer Fields to access this 2.25-mile trail. Walk about 100 feet past the Chimney Swift Habitat Tower to find the first green blaze on your right. The first half of this hike meanders through mixed woodlands. This easy-to-moderate trail then crosses the gravel service road and stays in the forest for a short distance before it quickly turns back out adjacent to the road and then back into the woods for the remainder of the hike. The last section follows along some of the largest oak trees in Boyce Park. The trail exits just uphill from the Archery Range then crosses over the service road and back to the Soccer Fields parking lot.

Boyce Park Meadow
The Parks Foundation, in partnership with Allegheny County, has planted meadows in Boyce Park and other parks. The native plantings provide a welcoming habitat for pollinators like butterflies and birds, while providing shelter for small animals all year long. They also reduce the need for frequent mowing.
