Thursday Evening Hike @ Lower Perkiomen Valley Park

Please join us for a brisk paced six mile hike every Thursday at 6.30 pm at Lower Perkiomen Valley Park in Oaks. This is a mostly flat six mile hike. Some hikes are out and back and others are loops. This hike is open to hikers of all levels including new members and beginners. If you are not up to doing the full six miles you can stop and back track at any time you choose. Since this hike is done in the Fall, Winter and Spring all or part of the hike is done in the dark. Please bring water and wear appropriate layers. Heavy rain, sleet, or snow cancels. Well behaved dogs on leashes welcome. Optional refreshment stop afterward.

Directions: The park is located at the intersection of 422 and Egypt Road. From the East on 422 take the Oaks exit and turn right on Egypt road. Turn right at the next light on New Mill road and into the park. The park and ride is approximated 1/4 mile on the left hand side. From the West on 422 take the Oaks exit and follow the ramp to the right. Turn right at the second light on New Mill road and into the park. The park and ride is approximated 1/4 mile on the left hand side. GPS:[masked], -75.44642. Please click the link below for directions:

    People, thank you so very much for joining the Thursday evening hike. Other than a bit of a wind, it turned out to be another terrific hike! We did the Audubon loop today. Per Phil, we had to do a loop hike on this day of π (Pi)! We had 16 participants with 10 joining us at Rock Bottom. Primary hike was 5.9 miles with a moving speed of 3.8/mph. Jeff, Thank you for sweeping. Nilam good to see you back on the hike. Adri, sorry you could not make it due to leg pain. Kathryn, sorry you could not make it due to battery troubles! It was also good to see John and Bill at Rock Bottom. I really enjoyed this very pleasant and graceful evening in its entirety – thank you! See you all in the Spring! - Bijal

    OOPS, I knew I should have bought a battery yesterday -- just tried to leave for the hike and my battery is dead! No other car home to use -- so disappointed!

    hey. I would like to join in on some hikes, but I don't drive since I'm visually impaired. Is there anyone in this meetup group who would be able to help me out with some rides to events? I live close to Valley Forge park in Audubon/Trooper. Send me a message if you can help out. I hope I have the chance to meet some of the great foks in this group.
