Casual hiking adventure

We will be hiking the Gravel Trail at Gifford Pinchot State Park in York County, turning it into a loop by using part of the Lakeside Trail. This should be about 2/2.5 miles, and is classified as easy hiking, and should take about 1.5 hours. You should bring snacks and water, and I would suggest hiking boots, but good, sturdy shoes would be sufficient for this hike. We will meet at the south end of the parking lot nearest the trail (see the link below), and begin at 1:00. Please plan to be there by about 12:45.

Please update your RSVP if you don't think you will be able to make this. Look forward to seeing you all there!

    Sorry for the late notice, but I won't be able to attend. Was hoping my knee would improve, but it's just not cooperating.

    I'm new to the group and I'm excited to go, but I agree with the group size. A group this size negatively impacts the trails and the experience of the other hikers on the trails. I agree with his suggestions for future hikes :)

    I'm thinking I'm going to back out of this one. I was just at Gifford Pinchot and I don't see enjoying a hike with this many people on their trails. Maybe if this is done again in the future, have different hikes starting at the same time and have smaller groups. Also, if it's rained the day before, be prepared for lots and lots of mud.

    I can co-lead (if that's even a word) hikes in the spring in the Cumberland/Perry area. I have already been doing that for the York Outdoors/SATC groups too. I have also done a lot after work hikes as well. I plan to resume those in the Spring too.

    December 8, 2012

    • Angela

      Sure. No problem. It looks like we may need two groups!

      December 27, 2012

    • Doug H

      Ang - send me an email and we can discuss. Great to have you help out!

    I have decided on Pinchot State Park for this hiking adventure. Date is still TBD as I'm trying to figure out what things will look like for me in the early part of next year with work.

      Doug, Pinchot Park is great too, it's been a long time since I've been there, so I'd be in on that for a hike there!!!

    How about Chickie's Rock in Marrietta, right along route 441 near the river.

    December 4, 2012

    • Doug H

      Chickies rock is a nice place to hike with great views but I was thinking something larger for this one. Perhaps if this goes over well we can consider that.

    Hey, I've discussed some hiking meetups with Erica before, and we thought we'd plan them in the spring, when the weather gets warmer. I usually go in Cumberland and Perry counties, though.
