Snowshoe & Sip

Pittsburghers are pretty spoiled with our quick access to outdoor activities—and even though the winter may feel like it’s limited in terms of ways to get an outdoor adventure in, we have many options that can get us outside once the snow starts falling. In fact, if you’d like to burn more than 600 calories an hour, enjoy picturesque trails, followed by warming up with a delicious hot cocoa afterwards, then follow my lead here…

Snowshoeing is one of the nation’s fastest growing outdoor sports, and luckily we’ve got plentiful trails nearby that span all age and ability levels. And if you’re not sure if you’ll love it you can rent a pair of snowshoes here [1] or here [2] to get your boots wet before buying.

Below are just a few of the many snowshoeing trails our region has to offer—paired with a spot to pick up your (rightfully earned) piping hot cocoa.

Before you head out, remember to wear layers, as snowshoeing can start out frigid but warm up quickly. And keep in mind these trail tips below. Happy snowshoeing!
