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 another amazing winter Thursday evening hike. While not quite as cold as last week, tonight was still cold – when we finished it was 17 degrees! We did the Valley Forge/Betzwood route for a full six miles in about an hour and forty minutes. Snow covered, trail made it a strenuous workout, however, the traction was superb, as most of the snow had not turned into the ice yet. We had 14 participants for the hike. John, thank you for sweeping. Hope you people have a terrific time on Saturday for Tri-State Dinner at SuTao in Malvern for the Chinese New Year. Wendy, good to see you back on the Thursday hike! We had 11 people at Rock Bottom – great times as usual, however the quality of conversation has been deteriorating – from now on we will focus the conversation on politics, economics, foreign policy, federal reserve policy, financial markets, and the Supreme Court! (I wish! – LOL!). A terrific evening – see you all next week.

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.
