It is a noncompetitive walk through the South Side Slopes neighborhood. It is a self guided tour using maps and narratives contained in a book. There are a series of streets, sidewalks and public stairways to walk. There will be several open houses with properties for sale along the way. Feel free to stop in and look. Due to the housing market, not all of the “Open House” locations were for sale when the maps went to the printer, so keep an eye out for signs by the Realtors! This year’s Trek has more access to South Side Park and different routes to show places that we have not taken you, steps that you have not traveled!
Yes at http://www.showclix.com/event/steptrek. Registration is open now.
Yes, you can register but it will be a bit more expensive than advanced registration. Go to the “Walk Up” table at the registration tent.
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 October 5th, 2013.
Almost certainly but we do not have the details for 2013 yet.
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. The Registration Tent is located in South Side Park at 21st & Josephine Streets. The registration tent has two areas, one for pre-registration and another for walk-ups. Please be sure that you are in the right line.
If you have preregistered, there are no additional admission fees. The 2013 t-shirt will be available for sale along with t-shirts from past StepTreks. Cash is appreciated.
We hope that it doesn’t rain, but we will be there rain or shine on October 5th!
NO! The Steelers don’t play on Saturday!
