    This was really a fantastic hike! Thanks to Bijal and everyone else in the main cabin. I explored more of the trail and met with awesome people and great serious hikers. I am looking forward to make it to the next one.

    Thanks Bijal! I really enjoyed it - getting to know a few more hikers and getting a good workout! My feet weren't quite as happy in that last segment, so took the Mt Joy shortcut back.

    Thanks so much everybody for a really fantastic day! Great hike, fabulous companionship, an all around perfect day! Thanks again Bijal, so much, for leading this hike, and most especially for finding me in the beginning. So sorry to inconvenience everyone. I was so glad to be part of this group, great catching up with friends and meeting new friends.

    People, thank you so very much for joining the first Valley Forge Monthly hike this Spring season! The weather turned out to be absolutely perfect for a change for one of our hikes! We had 36 participants today. We did (per Garmin) 12.5 miles with an average moving speed of 3.3/mph and total up elevation of 2023 feet! A really decent workout. The hike lasted a bit longer than usual at 4 hours and 45 minutes. My apologies for delayed start and some waiting initially at Mt. Misery as we wanted our directionally challenged fellow hiker to hike with us for the whole hike! (Never a problem!) My thanks to Tom, Dan, and Bill Lotz for their help with the hike and sweeping. We had 12 people at Valley Forge Pizza. Elisabeth, thank you for ordering my food as I was delayed for doing an adult beverage run! See you all on a future hike. - Bijal

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
