If you like to spend time outdoors, then this is the group for you! We offer you the opportunity to get outside through a variety of outdoor hiking events.
Pittsburgh Hiking Meetup is run by volunteer leaders who love the outdoors and want to get people outside. We are not paid guides. We do this because we are passionate about being outdoors. We are outdoor enthusiasts like yourself.
*Each volunteer determines what kind of hike they want to post. * Each event has different expectations, directions and details. Please take time to read the details carefully and make sure the hike you are interested in is the right one for you. * If you have questions about a specific hike, please email the specific hike leader directly.
When a person hosts a hike, that person represents the Pittsburgh Hiking Meetup Group, and must follow the rules of the park (and enforce them to the hikers she or he is leading). The group cannot risk being ejected from a park because of a few of its hikers. This is also to ensure the safety of the dogs.
If you host an event, you represent the group, and with this privilege comes the responsibility of following the law.
ALL DOGS on hikes with our group must be leashed at ALL TIMES.
If you have suggestions for hikes, or general questions about hiking, please use the Message Board.
We all look forward to meeting you on the trail!
One more very important thing.... When participating in Pittsburgh Hiking Meetup events, it is assumed that all participants are responsible for their own safety and of their dependents (such as children) at the event. The facilitator is simply providing an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the event together and is not assuming responsibility or liability for the safety of the participants.
