People, I am cancelling this hike due to inclement weather. Per hourly forecast as of now, there is[masked]% chance of snow/sleet/rain during the hike hours with 15-20/mph winds. The risk profile does not look good. While hiking itself would not be a problem in the snow; it could be quite treacherous on the roads, as many localities do not have enough salt to treat some of the local roads. We had a really bad experience on
the roads on the first Thursday of 2014. Just like all the bull and bear markets, this winter will have to come to an end at some point - there is no way around it! See you next Thursday. Be safe. - Bijal
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.
