Take a hike with an urban walk

Things are looking up for Urban Hike! We're ascending Spring Hill this
weekend to look down from what may be the highest point in the city. We'll
also box a few rounds, blow our minds with beer memorabilia in Spring
Garden, and see some lofty living spaces.

Join us Saturday, July 16th. Arrive at 9:30 am if you'd like to tour the
Heinz Lofts before embarking on the rest of the hike. Arrive at 10 if you'd
like to skip the loft tour. As always, bring sunscreen, water, and
comfortable shoes. The hike will take about three hours.

**If you've been on our hikes before, you know there are always some hills
on the route (it's Pittsburgh, after all). This hike will be hillier than
usual. Don't be scared--just be ready for a challenge!

We'll meet at the Penn Brewery's gravel parking lot on Troy Hill Road across
from Vinial Street. See you there! Any questions:

From downtown/Strip:
Take the 16th Street Bridge from the Strip to the North Side. Take the
third right onto Troy Hill Road. Park in the gravel lot on the right,
across from Vinial Street.

From the north: I-79 to I-279 South to exit 8B (East St.). Straight to the
third light, then turn left on to East Ohio St. At the second light turn
left on to Chestnut St., then immediate right on to Troy Hill Rd.
