Ready for a fall hike in Springdale?

15 10 2015

Join Urban Hike on Sunday to enjoy a fall urban hike in a town surrounded by leafy green (and, hopefully, red, orange, and yellow) hills – Springdale, PA! Of course, we’ll visit the Rachel Carson Homestead and Glen’s Custard, but we’ll also stop at a few lesser known places too, like the PPG plant.

This hike will be a bit shorter than usual (3.3 miles, a little under 2 hours if you don’t stay for lunch) so yinz can get home for the Steelers game! If you’re not in a hurry, stick around and grab some pumpkin pie custard at Glen’s or some pumpkin beer and a warm bowl of soup at Ladle’s.

As always, we hike rain, shine, or cold, so be sure to bring the appropriate gear. This hike will be entirely on sidewalk (no city steps or dirt trails), so if you can handle pushing uphill it will be stroller-friendly.

Although we’re meeting at Glen’s, please do not park in their lot. There is on-street parking on Porter Street (the side street next to Glen’s) above and below Pittsburgh Street and in the neighborhood nearby.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

Hike recap:
Sunday, October 18
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Park on Porter or another nearby street by Glen’s Custard (just not in Glen’s lot!)
