Recurring Event Event Series: Pride Outside

Pride Outside: Dead Man’s Hollow Conservation

April 16 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$10.00

Pride Outside

Are you a member of the LGBTQ Community looking to meet others and spend time hiking in the woods of Western PA? Join Volunteer Trip Leader, Bili O’Hara (they/them), as they lead hikes while celebrating the joy of queer identity. 

We will challenge ourselves on this progressive series of hiking trips throughout Allegheny County that will culminate in an optional weekend backpacking trip in the Laurel Highlands. Day hikes will range in distance from 5 to 10 miles at a pace covering ~1 mile in 25 minutes. Hikes will include significant elevation gains with uneven and rough terrain.  

This is an inclusive space for LGBTQIA+ individuals to spend time outdoors and find community. Some experience hiking is recommended. Participants should be prepared to bring snacks, water, and sturdy shoes. We recommend hiking poles if you have knee issues or plan to bring a larger day pack on outings. We do our best to estimate the timing of each event, but they may require more or less time than indicated depending on various factors. If ticketing cost is a barrier to participation, please email alyssa@ventureoutdoors.org 

Dead Man’s Hollow Conservation

Enjoy a beautiful and scenic hike in the largest privately protected conservation area in Allegheny County. The Hollow was the site of a thriving industrial area over 100 years ago that vanished after a fire and is the home of many mysterious tales. 

We will cover approximately 5.6 miles on the out and back route. We will enjoy a flat and wide crushed limestone pathway of the Great Allegheny Passage the first and last mile of the hike. The middle section will include some switchbacks and steep hills. This section will have uneven terrain, rocks, roots and muddy areas. The trail narrows and becomes brushy near our turnaround point, so please be aware of the potential for ticks. 

Starting Location: Great Allegheny Passage – Trail Access Boston
Distance: 5.6 miles
Elevation Gain: 577 ft
