Winter Hikes to Get Your Blood Pumping

By December 31, 2013

Follow me on:

On selected Wednesdays, Venture Outdoors leads adventurous city residents on a fast-paced, five to six mile hike to enjoy beautiful views of the city from unusual vantages. The next hike in the Urban Fitness Hikes series will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on January 2 up and over the hills of Mount Washington and Beechview, with a return trip by trolley. Each hike is just $8 for members and $12 for non-members, or sign up for the 8-hike series (two were already held in December) for $55 member/$96 non-member. 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. There's even a New Year's Resolution Hike scheduled for New Year's Day!
