Grab your gear and join us at Pinchot State Park for a day of play. Starting at 9:30 am you can launch a kayak, ride a bike or take a walk in the woods as your leaders take you on an adventure through the park. The paddlers will explore some of the open water in the park and may venture up a creek but they will definitely have their paddles – none of that up a creek without a paddle stuff! We may have a couple of extra kayaks so if you want to try this activity you’re welcome to join us.
The bikers will have a choice of exploring some beginner or intermediate mountain bike trails in the park riding along the lake front, deep into the woods and will include some of the roads inside the park. The ride will be about 12 miles. The hikers will ramble along the edge of the lake for a three-mile hike in this Central PA oasis.
After the morning’s activities everyone is encouraged to hang around for a picnic. Bring something to share with the group and we will throw some hot dogs on the grill. In the afternoon, it’s back to playing with your choice of a paddle, hike or swim.
We will meet at the Conewago Day Use area on the south side of the park. The entrance is on Alpine Road (for those using a GPS, the entrance is across from 1180 Alpine Road, Lewisberry). We will attempt to commandeer the isthmus along the right side as you enter the main parking area. For more info contact Mike Gavin at [masked] or[masked]-1905.
