Carnegie Urban Hike on Saturday

My kids play violin at the Pittsburgh Music Academy, in Carnegie, often on Saturdays. So, I'm hopeful I'll stop by -- if we are not swimming from 9 to 11 am.
Carnegie has been through a lot in the past year, and now they have to deal with us! Urban Hike is in Carnegie this Saturday to look at how one community is working to come back from last September’s floods. We’ll visit the home of a Pirates legend and check out Carnegie’s thriving arts scene. Meet us outside a rather artsy cafĂ© called Eccentricities, 222 Third Avenue, 10 am, October 1st. There should be plenty of street parking. The hike will take about three hours. As always, comfortable shoes, sunscreen and water are excellent ideas. We’re glad you thought of them!

The South Side Sabres play against Chartiers Valley this weekend too.

Directions:
From downtown/north/east:
Head west on the Parkway West (I-279). Take the Carnegie exit (#2). Stay to the right to head straight onto Jane Street, which becomes Mansfield Boulevard and then West Main Street. Turn left on Kinney Street, then right on Third Avenue.

From south:
Take I-79 north to the Carnegie exit (#57). Turn right on Noblestown Road, which becomes West Main Street. Turn right on Third Street and left on Third Avenue.

From west:
I’ll be frank, I think the Parkway West eastbound is going to be closed this weekend. Hey, I’m not happy about it, either. One option would be to take Steubenville Pike and then I-79 south to the Carnegie exit (#57). Turn right on Noblestown, which becomes West Main Street. Turn right on Third Street and left on Third Avenue.

Gas is expensive. Take one of these buses instead: 100, 25D.

How about bike directions from the city?
