Outerthere is hosting a one-of-kind experience through and under one of the most picturesque towns in Pennsylvania - Jim Thorpe - just 2 hrs away from NYC.
This trip will cover a very slow and careful mile under the town. Your host will take you through a dark tunnel with intermittent light from above. You will have plenty of headlamps and flashlights to conquer darker corners.
During your safety briefing, your host will give you brief overview of how to walk across the riverbed with balance and stability. You'll be shown exactly where to step and why. And you'll stay alert for some creepy crawlers that may hitch a ride on your helmet. The river never gets above knee depth.
This trip is rated beginner and is safe and doable by anyone at their own pace - including kids 12+. However, if you're not 100% comfortable with dark spaces, bugs or have any physical conditions that may inhibit a stable step, this trip may not be for you.

*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.
