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

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.
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.
