Thursday After Work Hike!
Join Us on the Middle Run Trails at Liberty Reservoir for An Easy Side of Moderate 4 Mile Trek!
"An anomaly: despite this hike’s location at Liberty Reservoir, it rarely offers views of the reservoir itself. Nevertheless, it’s arguably the prettiest and most diverse hike in the Liberty Reservoir watershed. The trail splits almost immediately; a fishermen’s path to the right heads downhill toward the water, and the main trail, a wide fire road, continues straight. If you want to spend a little while by the water, take the cut down to the edge of the reservoir."
Hike pace is a faster side of moderate and a bit faster than that of an average hiker.

Please remember we are a social hiking group that values fellowship and camaraderie and practice good hike etiquette. We take breaks as necessary and have at least one guide in the front in addition to a "sweeper" in the back which means that no hiker is left behind. If you get upset because someone has to rest at the top of a hill etc. then find another group! We are very supportive, encouraging, and focus on safety while getting or staying fit on the trail and practicing Leave No Trace outdoor ethics.
