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 evening hike. It really was a very beautiful evening with full sunshine and mild temperatures. We were able to go into the woods near the Audubon House thanks to Jason who knows those trails really well. , We had 32 participants for the hike. Welcome to all the new comers and many graduates of the recent Leadership Training Class. We definitely did full six miles at a very brisk pace. Lesley, thank you for sweeping. Becky, thank you for snapping the group photo and posting it. We had 16 people at Rock Bottom – great times! I think I can plan a hike to Costco – their stores are big enough to do a 12-miler! See you all next week. - Bijal

    Brisk! Thank you, Bijal, for asking folks to respect the nesting goose. Sometimes we forget that in our trips through the great outdoors, we are uninvited guests in the other animals' homes. `Give them space` would be an apt addition to `leave no trace`...
