Tour the Historic Moland House and Hike to the 8 Arch Bridge 1B1.5

Meet at the McDonalds Parking area on York road In Jamison, PA at 10:15 AM. We will then consolidate the number of cars and carpool to the small parking area at trailhead. The trail runs for about 1 mile along the Neshaminy Creek and is rutted and muddy in spots with possible brambles so please wear appropriate footwear. It starts out at the old Iron Bridge and ends at the 8 Arch Bridge which is the oldest bridge of this type of architecture still in existence in PA. The trail is out and back so the total length will be about 1.5-2 miles ( 1 hour). After our hike, we will drive South on York Rd. to Hartsville, PA (about 1+/- miles) to the Moland House.

The Moland House was used by General George Washington during the Revolutionary War. It is reported to be the first place that Betsy Ross's flag was displayed. Our tour begins at Noon. However, from 1-4 there is an open house scheduled with period reenactors. Families with young children are encouraged to participate. 1B1.5

Requested donation of $4 to tour the Moland House and view a short informational film.

    Well, actually, I scrolled down to find your reply from April 7, which I missed, sorry, that answers my question.

    It'll be just myself and a friend. Also, I never heard back about if, after meeting at McD's, if we're parking in the lot Dark Hollow or how long the hike is. I'm still coming either way. Thank you!

    Are we parking in Dark Hollow Park? If yes, the lot's on the left side of the road just before the iron bridge. Also, I've asked some friends and they will probably ask how long the hike is? From what I'm reading and understanding, not long. Thank you! : )

      We are parking by McDonalds and then carpooling to the dark hollow park lot. The lot is very small and parking is limited.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
