On selected Wednesdays, Venture Outdoors leads adventurous city residents on a fast-paced, four to seven mile hike through many of Pittsburgh's seldom seen places. The next hike in the High-Energy Hikes series will take place from 6:00pm to 8:00pm on January 2; meet at Schenley Park and enjoy a fast-paced 4-6 mile walk along the winding trails of this beautiful city park. Each hike is just $5 for members and $8 for non-members, or sign up for the 5-hike series for $20. Venture Outdoors also offers a variety of winter day treks and afternoon hikes in Pittsburgh's beautiful city and state parks. Some hikes add a nice theme - winter wine and cheese tasting and doggie-day hikes, for example. Hikes are available for members and non-members, but members get a discount.
