From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. you can register and pick up a map. If you arrive later, the staging area may be torn down by the time that you return. You can keep the maps and walk another day, as well. However, the walkability of the routes cannot be guaranteed after StepTrek.
Yes, there will be food trucks, and you are a short walk away from the vibrant Carson Street lined with restaurants.
Parking is available at the UPMC Mercy South Side Outpatient Center employee parking lot at 21st & Josephine Streets, at the foot of the South Side Slopes.
