Robin Hill Park is a 140 acre park in Moon Township that has roughly two miles of hiking trails. While this one can be explored in its entirety in just under an hour, it does offer a few notable sights worth seeing.
What You Can See at Robin Hill Park
Out of all of the parks we've visited in Pittsburgh to date, Robin Hill Park may be one of the smallest.
But don't let the size of this one fool you as it is still home to a few notable things to see including a beautiful Georgian mansion that is available for rent for events, an old oil well from the 1800s, and a log cabin as well.
Sure, you'll see all of this on a quick walk around the property, but these highlights are a few that go beyond your standard trees and streams you so often see at small parks such as this.
Hiking at Robin Hill Park
When it comes to hiking at Robin Hill Park, you've got it fairly easy here once you find the trail in the first place.
The trails themselves are easily marked, but to access the main one you'll have to go a bit out of the parking lot before you see the trail head next to the log cabin. From there, the trails are fairly wide and easy to walk through and connecting trails are almost always noted to make navigating a breeze.
Still, we recommend having a photo or digital copy of the park's map handy just in case as there are a few cross-over points as well as an access road you may want to avoid.
Overall, Robin Hill Park is an easy to explore park in Moon Township. Your visit can be well under an hour for a quick loop around the park, making this one a perfect stop to add on after a visit to one of the nearby boroughs. Throw in tacos at La Poblanita or drinks at Cobblehaus Brewing in Coraopolis and you have the makings of a great day out!
Robin Hill Park is located at 949 Thorn Run Road in Moon Township, PA.
