Thanks to hike organizer Neil Brennen, Pennsylvania becomes the sixth state to join HIKE for Mental Health’s 14 in ’14 program, targeting hikes in 14 states in 2014. In Neil’s words,
The outdoors is for everyone, but I didn’t think it was for me. When I weighed more than 400 pounds and was depressed, I never thought I could climb a mountain. I did when I hiked Pole Steeple. This is one of my favorite hikes, and I’m thrilled to lead a Pole Steeple adventure for HIKE For Mental Health.
Read on for details about this amazing hike.
