Mount Washington, Pennsylvania: Stare Down: Washington and Indian Scout

Unveiled in 2006, sculpted by a local land developer, a bronze statue of a giant-size George Washington crouches face to face with Seneca leader Guyasuta, overlooking Pittsburgh below. Guyasuta had once been Washington's scout, and the statue depicts a meeting between the two, many years later, to discuss the future of the region. Guess who came out ahead.

Stare Down: Washington and Indian Scout

One of the best views in Pittsburgh! This spot is directly across the street from The Monterey Fish Bay. It is the start of a 2.37 mile walking/hiking trail that goes down and back up Mount Washington. Most of the path is on a narrow hillside, so be sure to wear your walking shoes. As you walk the path you are surrounded by nature but in the heart of the bustling city below your feet.
