About

We’re a member-supported local nonprofit organization working to make it easy for you to get outside. We offer public and custom trips year-round that introduce people to the benefits of outdoor recreation. If you look outside in Pittsburgh, you’re sure to find us biking along trails, hiking through local parks, climbing our 24-foot climbing wall, or kayaking along Southwestern PA waterways.

Seen the yellow kayaks on one of the rivers or on North Park Lake? Yep, that’s us too! Kayak Pittsburgh is a kayak rental concession open May through October in downtown Pittsburgh, on North Park Lake, and at Aspinwall Riverfront Park.

Our Members make this all possible (and they receive discounts on public programs as one of their benefits). Join us today!
