PA Abandonned Mine Hill Climbing!!!

Recommended Posts

Wrong area. That is in Trevorton, Pa. Reading Anthracite Coal Company owned. I know that area well. The video was taken about three years ago by the looks of the hill you are playing on.

Hello Jarrod, If you look at the video link I have below. I think you will see at 20 seconds on both videos are the same area. Big difference in that area. Maybe the thread starter will give us a date of action. At least two years old.

That is a pretty massive hill!!!

Looks not to shabby cause if you fall it's nice and soft silt like dirt. Still, too high for me. I can barely handle the small little baby hills :thumbsup:

sorry Don you were right, that area is very eroded compared to the pics of just a few years ago.

Thats actually the smaller side.

The biggest hill is in the lower section, its very hard to get a size refrence o nthese.

I have been climbing their for three years. The hills are in constant flux. Mother nature likes us to have a new play ground so we don't get bored. Great pics Jarrod:thumbsup: Until you have been their, it's hard to visualize the height and steepness of the hills.
