Venture Outdoors

About Venture Outdoors

We’re a member-supported local nonprofit organization working to make it easy for you to get outside. We offer public and custom trips year-round that introduce people to the benefits of outdoor recreation. If you look outside in Pittsburgh, you’re sure to find us biking along trails, hiking through local parks, or kayaking along Southwestern PA waterways. Have you seen the yellow kayaks on one of the rivers or on North Park Lake? Yep, that’s us too! Kayak Pittsburgh is a kayak rental concession open May through October in downtown Pittsburgh, on North Park Lake, and at James Sharp Landing in Sharpsburg.

We believe everyone deserves the chance to experience how incredibly fun the outdoors can be, so we provide the gear, guidance and inspiration to make outdoor recreation part of people’s lives.
