    This was a great hike even though I was not quite prepared for it. I was sore even after a whole week had gone by. Bijal thanks for organizing it. Great bunch throughout and very stimulating interaction at dinner. Hope to do more with you all.

    Great hike! Thanks, Bijal for organizing it. It was wonderful to get a nice long hike in before the storm hits this week.

    I forgot to count my steps but I was there to hike for the day ! 12 or 15 ? I was there for the friendship of others and the 3 extra miles gave me more time and burnt more calories !

    People, thank you so very much for joining French Creek Hike. Other than some mist at the start, it was a perfect hiking day. Fall colors were just beautiful. We covered both the lakes in the park with 15.3 miles and about 2000 feet (Garmin). We had 19 participants with 11 joining us at The Inn at St. Peters for dinner. Rich, thank you for sweeping. Alex, thank you for your help too. We had a terrific and strong group with no one minding the additional mileage. See you all on a future hike.

    Anat and Amy,

    If I read Septa site correctly, train 1513 gets to Radnor station at 8.45 am. I can take you from there. The back seat of my car is a bit small. Please note that I will be staying for the post-hike dinner. On the way back may be you can find a ride or the return trains are at 8.44 and 9.44 pm. Please send me an email if you need to be picked up. Anat, you should have my cell. Hope this helps. - Bijal
