This wasn't so much of a hike as it was a bushwhack through the hills and temperate rain forest outside of Pittsburgh, set up by my friend Ed, who did the Reavis Ranch north hike with me back in March 2007. Ed likes to do a lot of "extreme sports", one of which is hashing, an activity that involves jogging thru the forest We started down the road from where he�s staying, along some railroad tracks, thru a drainage culvert, then directly up a muddy hill at a +50-60% grade. There was some nice scenery in the more remote parts, but also some walking thru neighborhoods. At one point we walked thru a 200 yard long drainage culvert in a narrow gulley. Good thing I always carry my headlamp. The shade through the entire hike was the best part, mainly because it's a good contrast from what's out here now near Phx. The highlight of the hike was seeing a mama turkey and her chicks. Lots of turkeys these days in PA, from what I hear and saw for myself this day.
