Join us as we explore the South Side at the Pittsburgh Step Trek on Oct. 8.

 Zoltun is pleased to sponsor the 2011 Pittsburgh Step Trek, which will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2011 from 11am to around 1pm or later.

The Step Trek is a unique way to explore some little-known parts of historic Pittsburgh neighborhoods. In its 11th year, and with over 550 tickets already sold, the Trek has become a well-established South Side community event.

 Tickets may be purchased in advance for $9.99, and children ages 12 and under are free. “Walk up” registration on the day of the event is available for $15.00. You can bring your pet along for an extra $4.99.

Your ticket will not only allow you to explore the unique South Side Slopes and Flats neighborhoods, but will also provide access to an artist market, live music, a Chinese auction, and food vendors.

The main way to participate in the Step Trek is to trek, of course, but there are other ways to get involved, too. Contact Alex ( for more details about volunteering. 

Volunteer opportunities include: 

  • Route Preparation (weed whacking or trimming, the week before the Trek
  • Route Marking (placing signage and indicators along the routes, the morning of the Trek)
  • Water Station Crew (stationed at points along the routes during the Trek)
Some of us Zoltunites will be meeting on Saturday morning to trek together as a group. Join us at Josephine and 21st Streets in the parking lot at the base of the slopes, where the event begins and ends.
We’re looking forward to this great event. We’ll see you there!
(And don’t worry. The Steelers don’t play on Saturday!)
