Memorial Day Hike 5/27/13 Blue trail Ridley Creek State Park

GPS ADDRESS 351 Gradyville Road, Newton Square, PA 19073

DOGS: yes, on a leash

LEVEL: This is a moderate level hike due to some hills and the pace, so it is NOT recommended for a beginner.

Length: About 4 miles

Start your holiday with an early morning  hike on the Ridley Creek State Park Blue Trail.( If there is an interest, we may add the white trail afterwards for a total of about 8 miles) Meet at 8:45 am so we can leave promptly at 9:00 am . We will meet in Ridley Creek State Park Parking Area #9 near the bathrooms and picnic tables.

Dress appropriately for weather conditions. You may want to consider bringing any or all of these items: water, snacks, hat, first aid kit, walking stick, field guides, binoculars, and or a camera.

    Thanks to the other 18 happy hikers for a memorable memorial day hike. We did the blue trail and then 10 of us continued on to the white trail. I always appreciate the contributions of the group members, from the map holders to the GPS trackers to the one man who knows the mating calls of the all the wild animals in the park. And, best of all, are the beautiful photos that capture the experience.
