Mother Nature gifted our region with a plethora of unique outdoor recreation opportunities. The day hikes and backpacking trips consist of the highlights of what Southeastern Pennsylvania’s roads less traveled have to offer the adventurous soul who is seeking an escape from the daily grind.
As for rock climbing and rappelling, Pennsylvania boasts of a number of quality outdoor climbing locations all varying in location, scenery, rock quality and texture. We partner with certified guides learning the basics of rock climbing and improving your top-roping skills and techniques. The goal is to facilitate fun, informative, inspirational and recreational outdoor rock climbing experiences.
