About the Adventure

Activity Level 3: Vigorous Guides: Joe and Lindsay Location: Frick Park Introduction to Hiking Series This series of hikes has been designed for those who are new to hiking and those who want to learn a little more about what can help to make the hiking experience more rewarding. Each hike will increase in length and amount of vertical gain. Sign up for all four or pick and choose the hikes that appeal to you. Hike #4: Distance and Darkness Hike Duck Hollow, here we come! This hike will begin at the Frick Park Environmental Center and take us all the way to the Monongahela River. Since the hike is descending nearly the whole way to the river, we will get to climb our way back to where we began. Perhaps we’ll see one of the Hays bald eagles looking for fish once we get to the Mon. This hike will cover 8 - 8.5 miles and we will climb about 750 feet as we head back to our starting location. Bring you headlamp! One will be provided if you don’t have one. This adventure offers an exciting night hike with the opportunity to practice the skills we've learned during this hiking series. It's led by Joe, friend of the WAC. Joe has worked in the outdoor industry for a long time and is a gear expert, having worked at REI for many years. He has led numerous hiking trips. If you've been wanting to hike at night but unsure about navigating safely in the dark... Hike No. 4 is for you!
