Scattered throughout Bradford are trails ideal for frequent recreation and exercise walking. They feature excellent surfaces, easy grades and grand views. Additionally, the Zippo Ski Slope Trail provides a short but challenging  single-track course for serious exercise.


CROOK FARM TRAIL - This trail follows Tuna Creek for 1-1/2 miles then crosses and returns on the other bank

COMMUNITY PARKS TRAIL and ZIPPO SKI SLOPE TRAIL - Our newest trails. Community Parks links the city's parks and the University of Pittsburgh, Bradford Campus. The Zippo Ski Slope Trail climbs where skiers once cut paths through the snow.

R.E. McDOWELL TRAIL - This trail is on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh's Bradford Campus and follows the West Branch of Tuna Creek in a beautiful setting.
