60 Hikes Within 60 Miles of Pittsburgh. If you know anything about parking in Pittsburgh, you know that it can cost more than your lunch (which we frugal sorts pack, so it definitely is more expensive to park!) Head across the river to Station Square and the prices go down. It's an extra walk across the bridge, but well worth it. The historic walk was well-written and easy to follow. We popped in and out of historical buildings and saw murals and hidden treasures we never knew existed. This was much easier to do without the kids, so we were glad to have had an adult-only day to do this.
Stavich Bike Trail, which for us starts in Lawrence County, PA and ends in a little town called Lowellville, Ohio. It is 10 miles and we rode out and back. It was hot, 93 degrees by early afternoon, but there was a nice breeze and some shade. It was all paved and an easy ride.
