Take a Hike!

Who says you have to travel far from home to go on a great hike?

 
This guide describes thirty-five of the best hikes in and around Pittsburgh, most of them within an hours drive of the city—from city parks practically within a stones throw of downtown to the bluffs above the Allegheny River in Harrison Hills Park, to the rugged Slippery Rock Gorge. Whether youre in the mood for an easy nature walk or a strenuous day hike, this guide offers plenty of both:
 
• The North Country Trail, one  of Americas longest trails

• Raccoon Creek State Park and its wondrous wildflowers

• Pymatuning State Park and its famous spillway

• The waterfalls of Ohiopyle State Park

• Spectacular scenery, from Conemaugh Gap to Cook Forest State Park

• Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve, a haven for birds—and kids

• Urban trails, including Frick Park

 
Each hike features full-color photos; a brief route description; thorough directions to the trailhead and beyond (GPS coordinates included); a detailed, accurate trail map; and at-a-glance information on distance and difficulty level, hiking time, canine compatibility, and fees and permits. Inside youll also find “Green Tips” and sidebars on local lore, points of interest, and wildlife.

Synopsis:

Featuring the best hikes in the greater Pittsburgh metro area, this exciting new, colorful guidebook points locals and visitors alike to trailheads within an hour's drive of Pittsburgh.

Synopsis:

From a hike through Pymatuning State Park to see its famous spillway, to an old Indian path called the Warrior Trail, this book describes the best hikes in and around Pittsburgh, many of them never previously covered elsewhere.
