One of our favorite Pittsburgh activites (and its totally free) kicks off the 2013 season this Saturday with a hike around the neighborhood of Garfield. The Facebook event page for the hike is available here.
Calling all urban hikers …
Are you ready for the first hike of the year? Join us this Saturday, April 27th as Urban Hike heads to Garfield! It’ll be a short, sweet, and steep hike — around three miles in total.
We’ll begin at Artisan Tattoo / Gallery at 5001 Penn Avenue at noon. From there we’ll walk up and down the hills of Garfield, and take in some lesser-known vantage points. Following the hike, we encourage you to join us for a buffet at People’s Indian Restaurant. We expect the hike to take around two hours, followed by an hour lunch or so.
As always, folks of all ages are welcome. There will be some step climbing and unpaved trail walking, so pushing a stroller for younger kids could get a bit difficult in spots. If you have any other questions, post a note on our facebook page, or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you this Saturday — rain or shine!
