Description

Come join 52 Hike Challenge Pennsylvania for Opt Outside 2019

We will spend our day not only opting outside but choosing to "Opt to Act" by collecting litter along our hike as well as discussing and creating a list of ways we can all make a difference on our favorite trails in the coming year.

Shoutout to our amazing sponsors, REI, Sawyer Products, Vibram, Bob's Red Mill, Gregory and Bushka's Kitchen.

Park at the Laurel Summit State Park lot on Laurel Summit Road, GPS coordinates 40° 07′ 05.969″ N, 79° 10′ 34.243″ W

The plan is to hike Wolf's Rock Trail and Wolf's Rock Loop Trail. This is a moderately rated 5 mile loop hike through the beautiful Laurel Highlands that has a spectacular view. Because the Laurel Highlands weather is unpredictable in November, if there is snow on the ground we will change our plan and instead hike to Spruce Flats Bog and make a loop of some other amazing trails and forest roads including Picnic Trail, Spruce Flats Trail and a flat section of Wolfs Rock trail.


Please bring / wear: *weather appropriate clothing (check the forecast for Ligonier or Somerset PA - it is always at least 10 degrees colder in the mountains than off) *water and snacks *appropriate hiking boots (this trail is rocky and sometimes wet) *trekking poles if you use them *camera or cell phone *bag to help with trash pick up *sense of adventure *family & friends *completed waiver before attendance https://app.waiverforever.com/pending/r5MfcL8UXT1457541699
