Tune-up (3-4 mile) hike at Jacobsburg State Park

This is a relatively easy hike of approximately 3-4 miles. The pace will be brisk, the purpose being to help some of us who need to get back in shape after the long winter. We'll be hiking through the wooded trails of Jacobsburg State Park, off of route 33, Belfast exit. We'll meet at the main entrance parking lot, which is adjacent to Bushkill Creek, at 9:30 a.m. We will not only hike the Henry's Woods trail, but we'll also venture into the upper section. This is a little bit of a trip from Bucks for a shorter hike, but am posting it anyway in case some are interested. Post-Hike Get Together: The Widow's Tavern (Stockertown) 200 Main St, Stockertown, PA 18083 Cross Streets: Between Bushkill St and Lefevre Rd widowstavern.com (610)[masked] NOTICE: By attending an event you are agreeing that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY AT ALL TIMES.

    Good morning. The hike is ON at this point. It is cloudy, and the rain isn't expected to hit until this afternoon according to the weather report I watched. So I'll be there at 9:30 for those of you that still wish to join me. I'm optimistic we'll miss any substantial rain or thunder.

      Absolutely yes, Mark. However since the weather is "iffy" I'll send a message out to the group around 8:00 AM stating whether the hike is "on" or "off". Cheers.

    Fred unfortunately I will be unable to attend the hike on Saturday at Jacobsburg. A family member passed away and the services are on Saturday morning. Hope you all have a good time. I will catch up to the group the next time.

    I hope that we have more people coming on Saturday at Jacobsburg State Park for the hike. The more the merrier. Joe

      I agree Joe, the more the merrier. I do have people coming from 2 other groups also, but regardless of turnout it should be a nice commune with nature.

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.
