Night Hike at Memorial Park - 6 miles

  • This location is shown only to members

It's time for another night hike, and Memorial Park beckons!  These hikes are super fun.  We've had as many as 75 members show up for the night hikes at Memorial and Terry Hershey.

The place where we are meeting is noted by the "YOU ARE HERE" marker.

Make sure to wear closed toe shoes in case you hit a tree root or two, and be sure to bring a headlamp ($12 at Academy). As long as you're investing in a headlamp, you might as well get one with red and green light options. They are easier on your eyes when using them in a camp with multiple people.

You'll also need water and a snack.  We'll grab some dinner somewhere nearby after the hike.

      Sorry to hear that... wow! with more than 100 people you should recruit some co-organizers... this is just my second time, and so, not much I could offer... just this call to action to other fit brave souls...

      March 14, 2013

    • Jennifer B.

      Lol...you can't get too far lost in memorial. Everyone should survive. We just won't do a headcount. That way if anyone doesn't make it out the rest of us won't have to live with the guilt. :-)

    Do you really need a headlamp to attend, shouldn't there be enough light with everyone else, I don't have time to pick one up if I attend.

    Sorry I've been so quiet about his hike, gang! I apologize to all the newbies out there. I've been working 20 hour days for a week and a half getting ready for a corporate visit, so I have had very little computer time. I'm very excited at the interest in this hike, and I'm looking forward to meeting all of the new people and catching up with some of you veterans. See you all in a few hours! :-) PS. Remember your headlamps, water, and snacks...
