Route map for Hike Murrysville

Thank you to everyone who helped organize this hike!
Some photos will be posted over the next several days.

Hikes of various lengths will be available, from short hikes to 10 miles.

Families with young children may wish to enjoy a relatively short hike through Townsend Park or down to Sloan School. For those who prefer a longer hike the route will continue about 5 miles along much of the Don Harrison Community Trail, running through the Westmoreland Conservancy’s King and Caywood Nature Reserves, and Murrysville Community Park (MCP), ending at the pavilion in the MCP wetlands.

For the most intrepid hikers a 10 mile route will double back to finish at the Townsend pavilion starting point.

Free - no registration required

Wear comfortable shoes suitable for wet grass, and dress appropriately.
If you like, bring a camera to capture some pics
