    Hi Everyone,

    The government shutdown continues and Valley Forge NHP remains closed. I will keep the hike up until Sunday morning, but it looks like it with be cancelled.
    We hope to see you on another hike in the near future.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I tried to ride my bike there yesterday and it is closed as are all National Parks across the country. This is so disheartening.

    Yes. If the shutdown continues, then this hike will be rescheduled or cancelled.

    Sonya and I checked it out last night. The park is shutdown and a ranger is chasing people away.

    Is the ridiculous government shutdown going to impede this hike? The Park's website now carries a notice that all national parks are "closed," including VFNP apparently.

    What's meant by "refreshments optional" ?

      After the hike, we stop at a local eatery for food and drink. Everyone is welcome, but under no obligation.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
