Haas a member of Mountaineer Search & Rescue has been leading folks on hikes since 2010 when Cameron County offered a series of hikes commemorating the 150th birthday of the county. Areas explored by Haas include the site of the Pepper Hill Fire, Canoe Run Trail, Bucktail Path, the corner stone marking the boundary of Elk and Cameron Counties, and even a night hike to the Whittimore Hill Fire Tower.
