Troy Hill Thanks

28 07 2015

Thank you to all who came out Saturday for our Troy Hill hike — we hope you had a good time!

During the hike, on the Route 28 walkway, we passed a grotto and several murals. There wasn’t time to stop and share then, but you can visit pghmurals.com now for more information on the artist and the individuals, places, and periods she depicts in the murals.

To read more about the history of Troy Hill in general, visit the Troy Hill Citizens, Inc. website.

We look forward to seeing you on our next hike!

Trying out Troy Hill

23 07 2015

Could Troy Hill be the most diverse urban landscape in Pittsburgh? It’s got an island, a leafy riverfront trail, a major highway, steep hills, historic homes, modern lofts, a plateau with breathtaking views, and much more! We won’t walk past all of it, but we’ll cover some of it and take you to great vantage points to see the rest on an urban hike of Troy Hill!

We’ll begin at the parking lot under the 31st Street Bridge on Washington’s Landing (yep, that’s part of Troy Hill) and end at 2:00pm at Scratch food & beverage, a restaurant coming to Troy Hill in August, but holding a special event the evening of the hike and opening early just for us! In between, we’ll take in the murals along the new Route 28 walkway, visit a unique bookstore and gallery space, climb some city steps… we could go on, but we’d rather save it for the hike!

So, join us on Saturday, July 25th and bring some scratch for Scratch (they’re still cash only at this point). Other necessary items? A water bottle, comfortable shoes, and whatever the day’s weather requires – we hike rain or shine!

We look forward to seeing you Saturday!
