What you'll do

Great family experience as well as couples and friend groups.

We will meet at Haak's School House in Germansville off of RT 309 and you will follow my car to the parking zone near the trail entrance. We will enjoy about 1 hour of total hiking along a sometimes rough rocky trail. My favorite part is the climb up a giant bolder formation with some deep crevasses to summit the most beautiful panoramic vista! We can then take 30-45 minutes to traverse the boulders and enjoy a picnic before climbing down and hiking out of the forest.

Activity Waiver to be signed prior to hike.

Please plan to arrive by 10:00AM sharp and not later than 10:15AM. Arrival after 10:15AM will result in cancellation without refund as a courtesy to your host and fellow hikers who will have been waiting.
Other things to note
This is a great hike for individuals, couples, friend groups and families! The boulder climb to the top of the ridge is the most challenging part of the hike and of course dangerous, and optional. Was thinking of adding a scavenger hunt along the way to add some fun for group? Thoughts?

I am a local executive for a non-profit and avid traveler (Ireland, Jamaica, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Bermuda, US Virgin Islands, London, Scotland, Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Greece, South Africa) and enjoy hiking.

Knowing the best trails to hike in a new area can be hard to find. For a quick 2 hour experience, I can guide you along the way for a GREAT custom experience. I have been hiking in the area for more than 20 years and it's such a robust forrest with amazing views.

We had a very good experience with Patrick as our guide. The hike is a perfect mix of easy to moderate trails. Patrick is very knowledgeable on when and where you need assistance! We highly recommend it.

This was a repeat experience for me…because sometimes we return to places that challenged us in order to prove we are stronger, recovering, becoming more authentic. And we go with the guide whom we had to rely on heavily last time. But this time, he pushed me (in a very good way!) , has me take the lead at times and I only needed to take his hand once as one of my three points of contact. And we selfied together at the summit…because I did this one from my heart, pushing through the climb and plotting my next move on my own most of the time. COVID robbed me of months of physical abilities, made me doubt I would do this again. But it will not win; I have had the opportunity to rise. I am super grateful that I found this experience because I was reminded I am more than capable. “It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves “ ~Sir Edmund Hillary

Do you want to fall deeper in love with your life or nature? Do you need to reconnect to yourself, your family or build moments with a family who takes you in as theirs? Do you need to push your boundaries and belief in yourself? Or do you simply need to check off “I hiked the Appalachian Trail” from your list? Then THIS is the hike for you! Patrick is a kind, engaging and supportive guide who will help be one of your “3 points of contact “ I will carry that phrase with me forward in life from this experience. Sometimes you need to find your own strength. Sometimes you need to let go of something to take a hand that will help you reach your goal. This hike? All that and more! If you have the chance to partake in this experience with Patrick: DO. IT. You’ll find something you lost within or perhaps something you didn’t know you were missing/capable of!

This was a great experience and I highly recommend it. We had a girls weekend and this was one of our highlights! Patrick is friendly, knowledgeable and observant. Having him for a made it easier and more enjoyable to hike and climb- no need to worry about where and how to go! I highly recommended this experience for individuals, small or large groups!
