THIS EVENT IS MONTHLY, BUT IS CONTINGENT UPON THE WEATHER & MAY BE CANCELLED SHOULD THERE BE HEAVY RAIN AND WIND

A Fun Challenge

If you're looking for a fun challenge, this is it! Nature will be all over you by the time we're done.

This is a great event to talk and get to know other ladies.

WARNING: Our hike is not a flat-terrain walk like the path we follow along Kelly Drive; this is moderate hike. The trails are hilly and will take us into wooded areas, so I wouldn't recommend this for someone with serious joint problems. There is a road that remains flat and runs for several miles right alongside the creek for those that would rather keep it simple, but our group will be hiking the trails. We will take a couple of breaks, but this is not a leisurely stroll; be prepared to maintain a decent pace.

Wear sturdy hiking boots/sneakers or regular sneakers with good traction.

I don't want to leave a fallen warrior behind, but I will! I'm just sayin'...

Also suggested are a bottle of water and a bite to eat, such as a granola bar, fruit or trail mix. Bug spray, sunscreen, and a hat/scarf are also helpful. You may just need a light jacket, but be sure to layer, as you will warm up. Bring your EpiPen or inhaler too (better safe than sorry).

Leave the makeup and perfume at home, because we are going to sweat! We might see a cute jogger, but I promise the chipmunks and deer will NOT be impressed.

This is a very popular area, and is frequented by people walking dogs, riding bikes, and occasionally riding horses. Just be aware of your surroundings. Park where you can, but NOT in the Sunoco lot.

By RSVP'ing, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Mahogany Philly Group Organizers, Co-Organizers, Asst. Organizers, Event Organizers, and/or Host(s) of and from any injuries, damages, or liabilities incurred before, during, or after event.

      The beginner hike will be the same 45mins. The second half could be made longer, but not this time...I have to another engagement right after the hike. You're welcome to take another trail if you'd like

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
