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 Thursday evenings hike. This, in many ways was really the first hike of 2014 as the weather was terrible last Thursday. It was cold today but not quite as much! We did the Perkiomen Trail for what turned out to be a really treacherous hike with solid ice everywhere. We did 5.3 miles in 92 minutes. We had 18 participants for the hike. James, good to see you on the Thursday hike and thank you for sweeping. Welcome to all new comers. We had 13 people at Rock Bottom. Great times as usual but we don’t like it when we don’t have a round table! All the ice should be gone by next Thursday. See you next week. - Bijal

    What do you bring as far as lighting? Just use flashlights? I'd like to go but 6 miles in the dark for my 4th hike (in my lifetime) is a little intimidating.

      Liz, bring a good light weight flashlight or a head lamp. Small LED flashlights work well.

    Do we need to bring anything along?

      Hi Rohan, The most important thing to bring is comfortable shoes. After that you will need a light source. You should dress in layers because you will get warm on the hike. The temperature should be around 32 for most of the hike so layers, hat and gloves are recommended. You may also want to carry some water.
