People of every size, shape, and weight deserve the chance to experience the amazing benefits of time spent outdoors with others. Venture Outdoors welcomes active folks in larger bodies to get outside this year through its series of size-friendly outings, at a pace that is safe and comfortable for each person. Each trip listing will give you the information you need to decide if the outing is right for you: active time and pace, general route and terrain, and if any experience is needed. You can look forward to a variety of monthly activities throughout the year, all in a positive and welcoming atmosphere in which we will celebrate all shapes and sizes. Join us for one outing, join us for all. This is where you belong.
Lawrenceville Art and Coffee Hike
Strap on your walking shoes, grab your cameras, and let’s take a hike through the colorful, celebrated neighborhood of Lawrenceville!
Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville area is filled with rich history as well as an enormous amount of growth. This formerly quiet section of the city on the south banks of the Allegheny River has transformed to an exciting, dynamic, and eclectic go-to destination. Its streets are lined with wonderful spots for dining, shopping, and culture. We will explore parts of Central and Upper Lawrenceville in a moderate-paced tour of some of the area’s most incredible public art. We will see statuary, metal art, and murals, featuring the work of renown Pittsburgh artist Jeremy Raymer. At the end of the journey, there will be an optional stop at a coffee shop, where you can choose your favorite bean or leaf. The cost of drinks and food is not covered in the outing fee, so participants are free to choose what best fits their desires at the end of this great hike.
We will be moving at a moderate but steady pace on sidewalks and streets. There will also be minimal inclines. Expect about 90 minutes of active time covering about 2 1/2 miles. Sturdy and supportive walking shoes are essential, and water for hydration is recommended.
Starting Location: NE corner of Butler St and 46th St
