This is a video highlighting a week I spent in leading a group on a backpacking trip through Allegheny National Forest.

If this is your first time with us, my name is Dave, and David’s Passage is the name of my vlog. This passage in life started with a desire to share my love of the outdoors with the world. My hope is that those who tune into my videos will be inspired to venture out and enjoy all of creation for what it’s worth. This video blog features videos on an array of outdoor-related topics, as well as DIY projects that might just help you more fully enjoy the outdoors. New videos come out on Tuesdays at 3pm EST, so please subscribe and be on the lookout for new content soon!

Music you heard in this video was from the finger-style guitarist, David Youngman. I highly recommend you check him out.
I have obtained written permission from the original artist to use his music in my videos.


  1. Did you get a chance to check out Heart's Content when you were up by Dunham Siding? It's an old growth forest area with about a 1.5 mile trail through it. Rimrock and Big Bend out by the Kinzua Dam is worth checking out too. Oh, BTW the nearest Golden Corral is in Erie.

  2. Whats a good moderate backpacking loop there? Thinking about making a trip in the spring.
