Join the Wampum Chapter for a Bigfoot hike!

A moderate 4-mile (total) out-and-back hike beginning at the Wampum Depot Train Station and heading west.

After a short road walk (.5 mile), we’ll head into the woods on the NCT in search of Bigfoot, one of the most elusive hikers around.

The Trail will take us into the Mines and Meadows area and on top of the former limestone mines (now Wampum Underground storage facility). Along the route, we’ll also pass an NCT hiker shelter.

Upon reaching the Mines and Meadows Campground, we’ll turn back towards Wampum where we’ll have a variety of homemade soups to warm our bellies.

Parking is available at the Wampum Depot Train Station (303 Main St. Wampum, PA 16157).

Remember to bring drinking water, dress for the weather, and wear appropriate footwear.

At this hike, we will also kickoff a new Chapter challenge this year. Participants have from March 17 to November 30 to complete 8 hikes from our list and either completed three stewardship tasks or become a Wampum Chapter member. You’ll receive a patch just for signing up and will be entered in a drawing to receive prizes once you’ve completed the challenge. Winners will be chosen at our holiday party in December.
