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.
