Sly Like a Fox - Winter hike and Brewery Tour! - SOLD OUT

AttentiSponsored by Sly Fox Brewing Company - Official Beer Sponsoron craft beer lovers!  Maybe you are feeling the itch to hike.  But, maybe you do not want to go too far in this arctic freeze.  While we have a great hike to warm your soul that is not too far but will get your heart pumping.

Come one, come all and join us for a fun, moderate hike through the woods of French Creek State Park.  This hike is good, solid exercise. But, it is not super challenging.  We will hike about 6.5 miles through a course that rolls up and down the hillside.  The total elevation gain for the day is about 700 feet.  So, there will be times when your heart is pounding and you break a little sweat.  But you will never go up more than 300 feet on any one hill.

Then, we will caravan to Sly Fox Brewing Company for a tour of their brand new facility.  After the tour, for just $8, you can taste any six of their beers.  Sly Fox is well known in the Philadelphia region as one of the original movers of the craft beer movement.

So, join me, satisfy your need to get out after a season of being cooped up at holiday parties and relatives' houses and most certainly try out some great beers.

Clothing and Equipment: Hiking boots, sun block, rain gear, and water bottle.  In case you have not noticed, winter has arrived. Dress in layers for the weather.

    Nice, easy winter walk in the woods, and the brewery tour was great, too: excellent beer, decent food, and a very knowledgable brewer!

    Hello--I haven't received directions on where to meet the group. Please send... Thanks.

    • Judith C.

      Fred, if you get this in time, you can have my spot. I called Fred and and told him and he just said for you to try and let Evan know you would be taking my spot. Hope you see this in time. Have fun.

      I think this was my fault. I was going to pay at the event, but that obviously doesn't work as I didn't get the directions. Next time I'll pay earlier. And thanks Judith for the offer. Perhaps you can get a refund.

  • Judith C.

    I am not going to be able to make it tomorrow. I have paid so if anyone wants my spot, I guess it's a freebie. Have fun.

    I was on the waiting list but now can't make it. Have a great time and I'll catch you on the next one.

  • Judith C.

    Does anyone know if there is snow where we are going to be hiking.

    February 9, 2013

    • Carl E.

      My understanding is they got less than an inch there. But, you should have a good a tread on your shoes as possible and I would recommend walking sticks for those who have them.

  • Richard U.

    hi,
    I am signed up for the trip, but was going to hire a car - I see a few of you are car sharing. Any chance you still have a space? I can of course pay in beer, petrol money or food!
    I am based in west Philly but can easily travel anywhere that there is septa!
    Thanks and looking forward to meeting you all

      So have we decided what we are doing. Are we meeting in Philly. I guess I can go to Richards to save him from having to use public transportation--do you have his address. I will also send him a note. Thanks, see you tomorrow.

      February 9, 2013

      I will let you and Richard work it out, and then provide me with his address, or a spot near it to pick you up. I told Richard to expect me around 8:30 am.

    Question...Is the $8 in addition to the $15 we already paid or already covered? I thought the $15 was in large part for the brewery activity since a hike is a free activity in general...

    February 7, 2013

    • Carl E.

      The $8 is in addition. I tried to make that clear in the description. If it is not clear, I am sorry. Our hikes are not free. We incur substantial costs in paying for wilderness first aid training, wilderness leadership classes, other trainings, the costs of maintaining websites and the logistics of running the club. While you may be able to hike on your own for the costs of supplies and guidebooks, we expect our club members to bear the costs of maintaining the club.

    Judith, Bob,
    thanks very much - greatly appreciated.

    I live near 46 and Baltimore - and yes there is lots on free on street parking there.

    It is no problem for me to take septa somewhere more convenient for you both - just let me know where you want me!

    thanks very much and looking forward to meeting you all

    • Judith C.

      Richard, where exactly do you live. I guess I can drive to your place and Bob can meet us there. I am in East Philly but since I have a car it might be easier for me to just come to you.

    Richard, I am also riding with Bob; where do you live. I am more in East Philly; a little south of Pennsport. Is there parking in your neighborhood as I could come there and meet up. Let me know. Thanks.

  • Olivia T.

    I'd like to go, but need a ride from Center City. Anyone have a seat left??

    February 4, 2013

    • Judith C.

      Great--just let me know where and if there will be some place I can park. How will you go from CC--just asking in terms of thinking where to meet. I could also round up people in CC and take everyone to meeting place. I'm at 4th and Tasker which is near the Columbus Blvd 95 exit. Thanks again, can't wait.

      Olivia, do you still need a ride? If so, in what part of CC are you located?

      February 5, 2013

  • Judith C.

    I am in Philly the east side of Center City, anyone else interested in carpooling from Center City. Thanks,

      Looks like the easiest will be for me to pick people up in CC. When we know who is going, we can pick a meeting spot for everyone, so I can make one stop. Don't forget to pay in advance through the link above under the payment section. looking forward to it, too.

      February 4, 2013

    • Judith C.

      Great, thanks so much Bob, I'm paid up and ready to go!

      I'm in West Philly but can take Septa elsewhere if that's easier.
