Get Outdoors – A Parish Life Activity

The hike selected for May 4 will be hiking some of the trails in Frick Park..

Frick Park is Pittsburgh’s largest historic regional park. Although Henry Clay Frick bequeathed the original 151 acres to the city in 1919, the park did not open until 1927 after additional land had been acquired. Most recently, 106 acres were annexed to the park as part of the process that created the Summerset at Frick Park housing development and restored the Nine Mile Run stream valley. Today, Frick Park stretches from its northern borders in Point Breeze down to the Monongahela River.

Known as Pittsburgh’s woodland park for its extensive trails throughout steep valleys and wooded slopes, Frick Park is an ideal escape from the noise of the city. Birding enthusiasts love to visit Clayton Hill, where well over 100 species of birds have been recorded.

If it is raining, we will reschedule.  Please email me at, so I have a rough idea of who is coming to make sure that we don’t leave on Saturday before you arrive.  We will meet in the main parking lot at

9:00 a.m. and carpool to the hike.
