We started at U.S. Steel Tower and trekked across the river to the North Shore, where we visited PNC Park and Heinz Field. From there, we crossed back over the river to Point State Park and visited Market Square/PPG Place and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

If you follow our path, you’ll walk:

  • Almost 4 miles, or nearly 6.4 kilometers
  • Nearly 4,000 steps, if you’re keeping tabs via your fitness tracker
  • More than far enough to hatch one of your eggs in an incubator!

Along the way, you’ll find PokéStops and gyms at nearly every location, plus dozens of PokéStops along the way where you can grab PokéBalls, eggs, incubators, and more.

At the many gyms placed around the city, you can battle other players while you take in the scenery. And don’t forget about the dozens of Pokémon who call Pittsburgh home, waiting for you to catch ‘em all as you roam the sidewalks.
