Summary:
Mike from Shady side I guess you have not been to the area in sometime, There is a loop single downhill double climb so maybe you should know what you are talking about before you spout. With that said this is only a fun side trail on the way to other fun.

Recommended Route:
Start on Gun Club Road make first right on SINGLETRACK then climb back up on double

Summary:
This trail is not for the serious mountain biker. I ahve not ridden it in years, but I grew up in that neighborhood and rode it weekly on my bmx bike for over 10 years. It is all dirt, about 5-10 feet wide mostly, and pretty steep downhill. I remember a jump halfway down that you can bypass. Great trail for local kids only. I would not go here unless it is within riding distance. Rarely is there other traffic (bikers or walkers).

Recommended Route:
Start near ball park parking on Gun Club Road in zip 15668 (Heather Highlands in Murrysville). Near intersection of Edinburgh and Gun Club. Trail goes down hill about 1 mile to Forbes Trail Drive. There is only 1 route.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Frick Park (daily), Bavington, Hartwood Acres
