Each year over 100 people from all over New Jersey and beyond hike the Appalachian Trail to raise money for Project U.S.E.'s powerful experiential programming. We have routes for everyone to have a great experience; choose from our 50-mile challenge, the 16.5 mile hike or the 6-mile hike.

All proceeds will help Project U.S.E. fund adventure-based outdoor education programs for underserved urban youth from Newark, NJ, including multi-day backpacking trips, community gardening job-skills & healthy living programs, and single-day wilderness programs at our Wildcat Mountain Wilderness Center.

In 2018 we had the honor to serve 1,385 Newark youth and awarded $127,660 in scholarships to Newark-based youth-serving organizations
