Thursday Evening Hike @ Valley Forge (3C6)


Our return to Valley Forge National Park from mid-Spring to Mid-Summer. Fast Pace. Meet at 6:30 p.m. at Washington's Headquarters parking lot near restrooms. Weather and daylight permitting we'll hike the trails and climb the hills. Optional refreshment stop afterwards. Thunder and lightning cancels. Well behaved, people friendly dogs on a leash allowed.

While this hike is scheduled for 6.30 pm every Thursday, it would be very helpful if everyone can get there by 6.15 pm. That way we can start signing everyone up. We generally have very large attendance during our 14 weeks at Valley Forge. We will try to break up the group between a faster group and the regular group either at the start or during the hike or on the way back so that faster hikers can do a bit more.

This hike is about 6 miles long with rolling hills and couple of climbs. you will need sturdy shoes and water. Please click the link below for directions to Washington's HQ parking area at Valley Forge.

    Sorry I missed the hike but hope to make the next one.
    Do you always hike the same trails or do they vary?

    People, thank you so very much for joining another terrific Thursday evening hike in Valley Forge. Beautiful weather and a very nice hike. We had 57 participants today. We did 4.73 miles and up elevation of 1067 feet for the faster group. We split the group just before going up Mt. Misery. Without my supersonic friend, I actually did the sweep duty for the faster group - a first in many years! Did not like it! Many people helped us today with such a large group including Jason, Greg, and Bill. James thank you for sweeping for the larger group. We had 17 at Rock Bottom. Despite so many people, it seemed quiet on the hike. Al Schwartz thank you for joining us and for your brief talk about the club and chapter to our group. See you all next week. - Bijal
