Some adventurous types like to investigate the hidden or (frequently) off-limits areas of infrastructure in and around Davis. These places include utility tunnels, rooftops, abandoned buildings, and sewers. While, technically speaking, this activity often involves trespassing, ethical urban explorers are most often like old-school hackers in that they intend to do no damage and only learn more about interesting places. This isn't to say that it's not dangerous. For more information in this pursuit in general, see the article on Wikepedia.
Urban Exploration Locations:
- Hell's Gate
- the 113 Underpass
- Tunnels on Campus, see No Toad Sexing in Davis
- Sunrise Farm (as of Dec 2011 this is a very poor place to explore because all the buildings were demolished and most of the vegetation cleared out.)
- Inside the water tower at Cannery Park and in the no-longer-existing Hunt Wesson Plant
- In the ceiling of Lower Freeborn Hall (all you need is a screwdriver and a boost)[THERE IS NOW A LOCK]
