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 first Thursday evening hike of this Spring season. It was a beautiful evening with lots of sunshine and mild temperatures. After a long time, we did the Audubon Loop trail for full six miles – no snow, no ice, and no black ice! We moved at a pretty brisk speed with average moving speed of 3.6/mph in the front. We had 20 participants for the hike including several new hikers, - welcome! Jeff, thank you for sweeping. Neeti, thank you for teaching me what Ides of March means going back to 44BC! We had 11 people at Rock Bottom, great times – despite my valiant efforts, the conversation kept getting dumber and dumber! See you all next week. - Bijal
