Where: Valley Forge National Park, Mt Misery trail head

RSVP to this Meetup:

Get a little exercise with your fellow freedom lovers. Too many of our social gatherings seem to take place in restaurants and bars, so here is a healthy alternative to socialize and enjoy the outdoors. Invite your friends.

This meetup will repeat on the first Sunday of each month. Exceptionally bad weather may cause a cancellation, so please check the meetup before leaving your house.

The Mount Misery/Mount Joy trail at Valley Forge National Park is a great place for hikers of all fitness levels. There are several different paths up the hill, so multiple climbs can be made, without being too repetitive. A typical hike will be 3 to 5 climbs. Each climb is about 400 feet elevation gain. Some paths are short and steep. Others are longer and gradual. We can even violate park rules and do some challenging off-trail climbs.

Experienced, fit hikers should bring a weighted backpack. Less experienced hikers can travel light and choose to do fewer climbs.

Everyone should bring plenty of water, sturdy hiking shoes, clothing appropriate for the weather and some snacks. If there is snow on the ground, micro-spikes or crampons may be advisable..

Disclaimer: This is a casual meeting of friends for some fun. You are 100% responsible for yourself. Participate at your own risk. By RSVPing for this event you acknowledge that event organizer has absolutely zero liability for any injuries.

RSVP policy: Please keep your RSVP up to date. Do not RSVP "yes" and then blow it off. If your plans change, please update your RSVP status. If you are running late please call[masked]-1222.

Directions: The Mt Misery trail head is near the covered bridge in Valley Forge. From Rt 252, cross over the covered bridge. The parking area is on the left. For your car GPS enter "Yellow Springs Rd & Baptist Rd" in Phoenixville. Google Maps:
