Duff Park

Average Rating:    (3.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Narrow singletrack to doubletrack that winds along the hill above Turtle Creek. There is also a couple mile stone road for beginners that parallels the creek. Duff is a 148-acre natural area located in hilly, heavily wooded terrain. It runs parallel to Route 22 and its main entrance is off School Road about 1000 feet south of the intersection with Route 22. There are numerous trails that can be used for a relaxing walk or a strenuous workout. The Funk Trail that runs along Turtle Creek and crosses it twice provides a flat walking and biking trail for about 1.5 miles and then goes up an incline until it reaches Round Top Road. The other trails provide the walker or biker with easy walking to strenuous climbs depending on the route chosen. Round Top Trail also connects to Round Top Road less than a mile west of Bessie Staymates Log House. There is a pavilion that provides a quiet site for a picnic or may be rented for group activities.

Summary:
Duff park can be pretty fun for an evening ride but thats about it. Its a small park so it tends to get boring a bit quickly. Its mostly twisty single track with lots of big uphills, or quick downhills depending whether yer goin up or down. Its probably one of the best places around to get a good cardio workout. Just dont plan on working on your bike handling skills theres nothing very difficult here.
5 stars if you want to blow up your lungs on a climb.
3 stars if you are looking for a fun ride.

Recommended Route:
Located on Rte 22 right next to Bentley's motorcycle shop.

Summary:
My group went there after reading review on mtbr. Lots of fun. Not vety many miles but if combined with townsend park or boyce you can set up a nice loop. Some great climbs and eqully good downhills. If you live around Allegheny county its worth the trip if already riding at Boyce or Monroeville area.

Recommended Route:
We rode from Boyce Park off of Round Top(?) road

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Boyce Park, Townsend Park are closest but may miles of singletrack within 10 miles at other Pittsburgh area Parks

Summary:
The park mainly consists of single track with steep climbs and drops. The park is very compact but very fun. There is also a gravel trail that parallels Turtle creek for a warm up or for beginners. The gravel trail is shared by joggers also. Water is availible from a fountain at the trail head from Spring to Fall.

Recommended Route:
Start with Violet at the Parking area and branch off on any of the several trails. Maps are availible in a mail box at the trail head.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Boyce Park
