Fineview Step Challenge

Celebrating its 20th year, the Fineview Step Challenge is a uniquely Pittsburgh event. It is a 5-mile Urban Trail Challenge ascending Fineview’s hills, streets and staircases. Among the steps are Pittsburgh’s largest stairset (337 steps) on Rising Main Avenue which is the equivalent of a 17-story building. The course covers 12 public staircases for a total of over 1,600 steps and provides breathtaking views along the way! Mark your calendars – the Fineview Step Challenge is scheduled for Saturday, October 17!

Biggs Hillside Garden

Biggs Hillside Garden is part of the GTECH Strategies ReClaim Northside Ambassador Program. The program was established to help Northside residents transform their neighborhood’s vacant lots into better places. With the help of volunteers, ReClaim Northside Ambassador Nicole Flaherty will transform the now vacant hillside in Fineview into an inviting public garden space with perennials, ground cover, and decorative pieces all shaded by large beautiful trees lining the property.
