Trail Description
About this trail
Awesome single track. Very confusing without a map- many intersections. 2 very steep death drops that are easily avoidable.

Review: A good trail to spin your legs off. Super boring if ur trying to put a lot of miles on though because it's Not very technical. A few nice man made free ride options on the sides as u ride thru the trail system. Park up at the soccer fields for best access.

Review: This is where I spent a good chunk of time learning how to ride. This trail is very solidly intermediate with some nice technical rooty sections. This trail leaves me personally wanting when it comes to flow. It feels very choppy at times but all in all its not terrible. A fun afternoon ride for someone local but wouldn't recommend going too far out of your way for this trail. Has some obstacles that are fun to session, and some nice beginner sections to find your sea legs. definitely plenty of variety that can make returning very enjoyable. all in all a very fun piece of singletrack.

Review: We entered from the parking area off Bird Meadows Drive, which is the recommended trail head from this site. We rode a number of trails, which were very well marked, including Wetlands Trail, Queen Maple Trail, White Pine, Many Habitats, Sylvan Ridge, Old Oak, Sky Meadow, Boyce School and the connectors. We didn't see any of the man-made obstacles shown in the pictures. (Perhaps those were on the few trails in the upper section of the map that we didn't ride?) In general, some flowy areas, narrow single-track with greenery to avoid, and mild roots and rocks. We rode 7 miles and hit many of the trails more than once, so I'm not sure how it's listed as 20 miles. We enjoyed the ride but it wasn't worth the two-hour drive for us.

Review: Excellent riding. Whether you start at the log cabin or the soccer fields, you're going to have a great ride. There was recently some work done on the trails and it made them that much better. Overall boyce is set up great and no matter what way you ride, you'll have a smile on your face the whole time.

Review: I've been riding Boyce for 11 years now and I keep on riding them. After a few times of riding the trails, it all makes sense of what trail goes where. If you look on a map before hand it will definitely help you but you get used to it. The more trails you find the more obstacles you find. There are some good obstacles. Some trails are real narrow and on a ridge. Be prepared for those. Lots of roots in the way but not a huge problem. I prefer to start at the ski lodge and head for the log cabin and take it from there. Doing the soccer field trail, tennis court trails, everywhere is for a good time

Review: 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.

Review: Had a great time here today and could have done another few loops exploring the many trail offshoots. Fast and flowy without gasping climbs. Not epic, but definitely worth a 30-45min drive. I'll be back.

Review: Pros: Flowly, lack of big hills for PGH.

Cons: Super confusing system.



Boyce is a nice place for beginners, but intermediate riders won't get much better here because the trails are pretty smooth without a lot of obstacles. There are log jumps and roots, but the highlight is a lack of tough hills, rocks or big logs. Some trails are fast and fun. All around It just lack personality relative to Hartwood, Frick and North Park.

Review: The trails are definitely confusing without a map. Went out for my first time yesterday and got lost for a little, but after trying some random turns we found our way back. The terrain varies from wide paths (where people can ride on horseback as well), to narrow, and there are plenty of elevation changes.
