Every year, we like to host special trips for beginner backpackers. This is one of those trips: an easy backpack in, with no elevation, set up tent and firewood in different locations, handle your business in the woods, and easy backpack out. Two days/1 night with amazing people.
As if that wasn't awesome enough, what makes this particular trip extra-special is that we’ll be exploring a series of abandoned highway tunnels! Yes, PA built a complete highway - with tunnels! - and then just abandoned it. Then they converted into a hiking trail. So, it's also a giant Sidemission trip for anyone interested in exploring these tunnels.

*What's is a Side Mission? Side Missions are things we do on trips that are not on our schedule or itinerary; when we're on a trip and we spontaneously add a completely unexpected detour. Most of our trips gently nudge you push past your comfort zone. Side Missions are for people who have no comfort zones. Side Mission are never be canceled due to weather. Consequently, Side Missions are NOT covered by our insurer and as a result, you should be aware that you will do them AT YOUR OWN RISK. That said, for everyone’s safety, your Host will always check out a Side Mission first and if they give the "All-Clear", the rest of the group can proceed. You will be reminded of how Side Missions work during your trip’s safety briefing. Non-compliance; or if your Host determines any aspect of a Side Mission is unsafe for any reason means that the entire Side Mission will be immediately stopped.
