    This was a really great work out hike. We did approx. 11.5 miles in less than 4 hours including a lunch break by the lake. We averaged a 3.7 MPH pace and completed +1600 ft of elevation gains! This was a great group of hikers...including another appearance by some of the Hammers! A very special thanks to Al for co-leading and showing me a great trail route. Thanks to Steve and Al for getting together at Rockwell's for a bite to eat and drink afterward! Thanks to everyone who made it out today!

    Hi All, Please pardon me for the late waffling and change of decision about this hike, however...after conferring with trusted and well-respected fellow hike leaders today...I've decided to move this hike over to Green Lane for this Sunday. Change of details coming shortly. This decision is being made with the best interests of all of you in mind! I sincerely hope this doesn't mess up anybody's Sunday plans too much...and I hope you can still join me. Thanks!

    Well Folks, following the success of last night's PM Valley Forge Hike from an alternate starting point location...I am now hopeful and optimistic that I can plan out a worthy 12-15 mile Valley Forge Workout Hike for Sunday. Otherwise, I may construct a nice hike at Green Lane. Stay tuned.

      Hi Tommy, I hear you. Since we are getting these larger groups...I'll start coordinating the circle up and intro's a bit sooner so we can leave right on time at 9:15am.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
