Carrick is a Pittsburgh neighborhood located south of the Monongahela River.

Regardless of if you are brand new to Pittsburgh or a life longer yinzer, Urban Hike is a great way to learn about a city neighborhood. For over a decade a group of faithful volunteers have been mapping and researching routes around different Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

Carrick Urban Hike

This time we are going to Carrick! We are excited to check out this neighborhood for the first time.

This 3.5 mile hike will have some ups and downs and then ups again since this is a pretty hilly place. Be prepared for steep climbs and a few places without sidewalks. Come if you are ready for a work out–this one isn’t stroller friendly. There may be some overgrowth so bring bug spray too.

As always, we walk rain or shine (or intense heat), so come prepared for whatever the weather may hold.

Meet at the Carrick Shopping Center on Brownsville (2134 Brownsville Rd) near the intersection of Parksfield and Brownsville. There is a Dunkin Donuts if you’d like to come early to grab a coffee and metered on-street parking on Brownsville (not enforced on Sundays).

We will be ending at the Nepali Asian Restaurant in the Carrick Shopping Center and invite everyone to join us for lunch.
