We’ll start our day on the historic Appalachian Trail, the longest hiking-only footpath in the world, ranging from Georgia to Maine. On the AT, we’ll explore the Lemon Squeezer, an unusual rock formation where the hiker has to squeeze through a path that is three feet high, one foot wide, and angled 15 degrees. Having made our way through the Lemon Squeezer, we’ll continue on the rolling hills of the Ramapo-Dundenberg trail, while stopping to take in the magnificent views. As a final treat of the day, we’ll pass through Valley of the Boulders and see more unique rock formations, cracks, caves, and overhangs. Join us for a day of adventure!
