I started this slightly longer walking or jogging trek at the Mary Schenley Memorial Fountain in Central Oakland at 40.44201°N and -79.95205°W. I walked along Schenley Drive crossing the Schenley Bridge at 40.44134°N and -79.94928°W. I made a brief stop at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens located at 40.43925°N and -79.94732°W. It’s a place that one should visit if you’re in town but the hours of operation accessibility have been modified in light of the ongoing SARS-CoV2 Pandemic. I stopped by Flagstaff Hill just across Schenley Drive at 40.43971°N and -79.94663°W but placed the trail waypoint at the flagstaff without electing to follow the trail up the mound. From the top of this very short mound you’re able to get a good view of the Oakland district of Pittsburgh. From here you’d go right to Panther Hollow Road crossing the historic Panther Hollows Bridge at 40.43788°N and -79.94706°W. There’s a small monument in the greenspace at the crossroads of Panther Hollow Road at 40.43608°N and -79.94633°W. Stay left following Panther Hollow Road until the intersection with Greenfield Road and Hobart Street located at 40.43286°N and -79.93652°W. Turn heading right along Greenfield Road crossing the Greenfield Bridge at 40.42922°N and -79.93757°W. Proceed directly across the lights at Beechwood Boulevard and Ronald Street at 40.42708°N and -79.93859°W heading along Ronald Street onto Greenfield Avenue at 40.42570°N and -79.93843°W. Follow along Greenfield Avenue past Magee Field and Recreation Center. I turned left at Greenfield Avenue and Loretta Street at 40.42179°N and -79.92971°W and then left at Loretta Street and Murray Avenue at 40.42193°N and -79.92887°W. Just follow along Murray Avenue past the bridge crossing Interstate 376 at 40.42777°N and -79.92589°W. I turned left at the intersection with Murray and Forbes Avenues at 40.43803°N and -79.92295°W. The idea here is just to follow Forbes Avenue back to Central Oakland in any way that you like. It can be terminated at Schenley Drive and you can traverse a part of Schenley Park again if you prefer. I turned right at the corner of Forbes Avenue and South Bellefield Avenue at 40.44396°N and -79.95071°W. You’d go past the Heinz Memorial Chapel and then I turned left at South Bellefield and Fifth Avenues at 40.44644°N and -79.95192°W. I made a stop at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial at 40.44449°N and -79.95575°W and then the William Pitt Union Building at 40.44376°N and -79.95469°W before stopping by the Cathedral of Learning at 40.44398°N and -79.95363°W. From here I just walked down Schenley Boulevard to return to the starting point of the track.
Happy Trails.

    This is a very good walk and quite easily done. I enjoyed the small sections with some gradient through Squirrel Hill. That kept the track interesting and entertaining. It is easy enough to be done in any season without issues. There are several places of interest along the route that you would want to stop and poke around at.
