Night-Fishing the Yough for Big Browns 

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 

Hump Day Getaways will take you to the Youghiogheny in Ohiopyle. We will teach you to skate dry flies for big brown trout that come out of hiding to feed at night. These fish prey on large mayflies, caddis flies, and even mice! You may not see them take your fly, but you'll feel them, so hold on tight! Pennsylvania Fishing License requirements apply.Previous fly-fishing experience required.

Panhandle Trail Ride 

Saturday, August 23, 2014 

Southwestern Pennsylvania has many bike trails to explore. We will pedal on the Panhandle Trail making plenty of interesting stops throughout the trip. Named after the Panhandle Division of the Pennsylvania Railroad, the abandoned rail line which it is built upon, the trail extends 29 miles from Walkers Mill in Collier Township all the way into West Virginia. The trail is a bike-friendly crushed limestone path through beautiful and diverse landscapes. We’ll pedal 23 miles total on this out and back ride with a stop for lunch at Hunner’s Deli, located along the trail. Lunch and bike rental are not included in the program fee. Bike rentals are not available through Venture Outdoors for this ride. 

Mountain Streams Loop Hike 

Saturday, August 23, 2014

This hike will follow the Mountain Streams Trail, the Mountain View Trail and other lesser know trails on an 11+ mile hike that includes 1200+ feet of elevation change along the way. The pace will be steady and there will be some relatively steep climbs/downhills, several stream crossings and quite likely some mud for you to experience. The flowering wildflowers will add to the enjoyment along the way. The hike is for advanced hikers who are in shape and want to test their level of fitness.

Whiskey Tasting Walk 

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Join us for a brisk walk through the Strip District and surrounding areas. We'll discuss the history of the area while connecting its riverfront trails, side streets and main corridors. After the walk, we'll join Eric Meyer for a tour of Wigle Whiskey, a craft whiskey distillery in the Strip District. We'll start with a cocktail, and then he'll lead us through the whiskey making process, including how whiskey production has affected Western PA's history. The tour will end with a tasting lesson of samples of Wigle Whiskey accompanied with meats and cheeses. Limited space available. Minimum age 21. A portion of this Wheelchair Accessible outing will talk place on the crushed limestone of the Riverfront Trail.
