Larimer Clarifications

The Larimer Hike will meet at the Coffee Tree Roasters in Bakery Square on Saturday 9/25 at 12pm (noon). It seems the Coffee Tree is too new to show up on Google yet, but you can look for Bakery Square instead. The link to Bakery Square on Google Maps is below:

Larimer at Last!!

It's finally happening! We're going to meet at noon this coming Saturday (9/25) at the Coffee Tree Roasters in Bakery Square - its on Penn Avenue, across from Mellon Park. There is a garage at Bakery Square, but parking is only free for three hours. The nearby lot next to Staples (6375 Penn Ave) has plenty of free parking.

We'll get to see a neighborhood in transition, and hear from some of the people making the change a reality. The hike should last about three to four hours, with a few stops along the route. There will be gardens, pigs, churches (even one for sale, so bring your checkbook), and lots of green development. We will be walking about 4 miles through a mostly flat urban neighborhood.

Don't forget to bring water and wear sunscreen. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Save the Date - Larimer!

We are making progress on the next hike! So mark September 25th on your calendars for a tour of Pittsburgh's latest up and coming neighborhood, and a center of green development. Larimer hosts a variety of interesting activities that you probably didn't expect (we didn't, anyway) and we are looking forward to exploring it with you. See you in a couple of weeks!

Urban Hike Returns from Hiatus

Urban Hike is back! Due to a crazy combination of weddings, babies, new homes, grad school, and job hunts, we were forced to take a short break. But we missed you, and we missed exploring the city, and so we are planning two more hikes before the winter break.

We will have a hike in Larimer in late September, and our traditional scavenger hunt will be in October. Stay tuned for more details (and we mean it this time!).

We are looking forward to seeing all of you soon.
