Hike & Caving

Unit price  per 

There are thousands of caves to explore on the east coast.

Many of them here in NY. Geologists and casual explorers have been rediscovering, mapping and studying them for years.

These guys (yes, mostly guys) tend to protect access to these caves through private purchases and other regulations.

The primary reason is for our safety. If you get in a cave unprepared and are unable to get back out, you can be rescued, but it's very expensive.

So, the fewer people know about these caves, the fewer accidents and fewer resources dedicated to rescues.

Those resources can then be invested into rediscovery, acquisitions and science. That doesn't exclude you; it just makes it much harder to participate in this amazing activity, even if you know you can handle it.

Come and explore caves with us. This invite is for anyone who feels ready to push themselves past their comfort zones and step up their outdoorsy game.

We'll do a proper safety briefing, a discussion about the geology of the cave and explore it safely and responsibly. We promise that after this trip, you'll have the best outdoor adventure story at work.

You will be sent detailed instructions on gear you’ll need after you sign up. But don’t worry, you probably won’t need to buy anything new.
