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 the Thursday evening hike at Valley Forge. This was clearly a very messy evening. It rained during the entire duration of the hike! I was separated from the whole group for the most of the hike as I waited for someone running late. Despite the weather, somehow we ended up with 33 participants. We all did both Mt. Misery and Mt. Joy. I am sure someone will have all the hike stats. Jeff, thank you for sweeping. We had 17 people at Rock Bottom and great times as usual. See you all next week. - Bijal

    Work ran late and traffic up there is bad as always. Rather than hold everybody up, we are going to pull out tonight. Hope to see everyone next week!

    With such a large group, will the hike be split into 2 groups like it has been done a couple of times before or will this be ensemble from start to finish?

    Just to be sure, is there a parking lot at or near Washington's headquarters? I don't know that I've parked there before.
