The road less traveled is often the more fulfilling one, especially when it bypasses Robert Frost's tiger pits. Diverge from a rote route with this Groupon.

Designed for rappellers 14 and older, the adventure at Castle Rock State Park includes instruction from certified teachers on the basics of rappelling, after which groups test what they've learned by working their way down from the top of a cliff. Classes are limited to a 6:1 student-to-instructor ratio. Treks and Tracks provides helmets, harnesses, ropes, and rappelling devices, and rappellers should wear sunscreen and sturdy shoes or boots and bring water and lunch.

Treks and Tracks

Surrounded by craggy peaks, three men in bright-red helmets stand in the midst of wilderness, surveying the mountains around them as their group of hikers break for a snack on the rocky ground. This interface with the majesty of nature is all in a day's work for this trio of adventurers—Paul Mangasarian and Jakob and Daniel Laggner. Still, their passion for open-air exploration grows with each expedition they lead. Paul, Jakob, and Daniel cofounded Treks and Tracks with the dream of orchestrating excursions into nature that combine ancient means of travel—such as sailing, horseback riding, and hitchhiking on a centaur—with modern sports ranging from surfing to rock climbing. Though they focus on introducing novice outdoorsfolk to unspoiled wilderness around the world, Treks and Tracks' cofounders also strive to leave the awe-inspiring surroundings they visit as pristine as they found them by rigorously upholding practices of environmental stewardship on each expedition.
