Ok, I am totally stealing this venue from Kenny! After doing this hike last year, I have been wanting to do it again. I am unable to make it on the 27th due to my work schedule, so I will be doing this same hike myself on the 28th and I thought I would make it available to the group and those of you who were not able to make the hike on the 27th.
GERMANTOWN EVENING HIKE!
We will hike the Twin Valley Trail (TVT) from Kercher Park to Germantown Dam and back. This is a very scenic portion on the TVT that is single track with plenty of ups and downs. Pace will be moderate, but we will not stop for a break unless someone indicates the need to do so. Bring source of light, water, and trekking poles (if you have them). It will be getting dark on our return trip.
More About the Twin Valley Trail (TVT)
The Twin Valley Backpacking Trail combines the existing network of trails in Germantown and Twin Creek MetroParks with a connection to create a longer, more integrated trail system totaling over 43 miles throughout 2600 acres.
Set in the rolling hills of the Twin Valley, the TVT provides a backpacking experience reminiscent of other wilderness trails with beautiful hills, babbling brooks, abundant wildlife, history and small town charm.
Meet at the shelter house within
Kercher Park. There are picnic tables and portable toilets at the park. Please fill your water bottles before you arrive as the water may be unavailable during this time of year.
