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. We alternate between four different routes/hikes and
generally repeat a route once every month. 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 last Thursday evening hike for 2013. It turned out to be a really cold but pleasant evening. The temperature was 29 degrees Fahrenheit by the time we finished the hike! We did the Dog Park route for a total of about 6.4 miles. We had 20 participants for the hike. Kevin, thank you for sweeping. We had 11 people at Rock Bottom – great times as usual. Welcome to all the first timers! Carol, good to see you again on a Thursday evening hike! We had 50 Thursday evening hikes during 2013 for a total attendance of 1362 or an average of 27.24 every Thursday! In 2013 every Thursday we averaged 41/week at Valley Forge and 22/week at Lower Perkiomen! Thank you so very much for making all the Thursdays so much fun this year! Have a Happy and Safe New Years’ everyone. See you all next week. - Bijal

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
