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.

    People, thank you so very much for joining another terrific Thursday evening hike. We did a longer hike with close to 7 miles in distance and over 1200+ feet of total up elevation. We also maintained a faster than normal moving speed – my guess is over 3.4/mph. We made some changes in the usual route – Jason, thank you for your help in that. Elisabeth, saving that pigeon and taking it home was truly a good karma! Please let me know if there is any way I can help. Kerry, thank you for helping me out at the restaurant – I owe you! Rick S. and James thank you so very much for sweeping. Eleven more pictures on FB! We had 32 people on the hike and 16 joined us at Rock Bottom – terrific time there. This was truly a terrific evening with people I enjoy spending time with. See you all next week. - Bijal
