I've been riding Boyce Park for about 6 years now. There's a TON of trail in there and there's something for everyone. From rugged rocky and root covered goat paths to challenging man made obstacle to flowing singletrack to bombing downhill runs to flat double track, Boyce has it all. The two most common parking spots are the soccer fields or the Log Cabin. I prefer the cabin because you start and the bottom and climb to start and have a fast downhill to finish your ride. There's trail in just about all of the park, including behind the Wave Pool and Ski Slopes.
The trails are somewhat blazed now, so if you stick to a color, you'll be on an established loop. Bring a tube and a pump though, lots of "jaggers" and even some broken glass in places.
My buddy Timmy calls Boyce a "Playground for Mountain Bikers." He's right. Surpassed only by Frick and North, Boyce Park is among Pittsburgh's best.
