Haverford Twnshp Heritage Day (Tinicum to Valley Forge via Cobbs Creek, Part IV)

We will hike from the Township Line Road station (of SEPTA #100 Norristown High Speed Line trolley) to the Haverford Township Heritage Festival, arriving around 12:30pm. On our way there we will look at the trail possibilities and requirements along the Creek on the side opposite the Grange Estate, including a missing Estate bridge that would need to be re-installed for a better connection from the Grange Estate to Manoa Road and the Haverford Trails network along Karakung Drive (which is also part of historic Powder Valley gunpowder producing area). More info about the Heritage Day can be found here: www.haverfordhistoricalsociety.org/news-a-events/[masked]heritagefestival.html The #100 line offers quick return via Penfield/Manoa Road & Beechwood/Brookline stations.

Additional hikes in the Heinz-Valley Forge Future Trail series will be announced through the DCVA newsletter, on www.meetup.com/phillyhikes, and other publications as the summer progresses. We will be looking at a through route for Haverford College, Bryn Mawr and Villanova to reach the popular Radnor Trail, and in later segments we will be looking at options from Strafford to the expanding Chester Valley Trail and for the best way into Valley Forge National Park.

    Hello Everyone,

    Thank You for signing up for Sunday's walk to the Haverford Township Heritage Day. Although the walk is fairly short, it will be quite hot, so be sure to bring water, and gatorade would not be a bad idea, either. We will have an information table set up at the Festival, and David Bennett of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia has agreed to watch our (actually *his*) table until we arrive (in exchange for sharing space). Scott & I will both take a shift, and I plan to take the last hour (3-4pm). It would be great if one or more of you could hang out at the information table for a shift as well: maybe 45 minutes or so. We'll have chairs, and I just bought a 6'x6' canopy that I'll be setting up for shade.

    I look forward to seeing all of you!

    How long is the hike in miles and hours?

      As outlined in the description above, we will walk for no more than an hour and 15 minutes to get to the Festival. We will walk for perhaps 2 miles altogether before arriving at the Festival; since we will check out the Grange Estate, we will be doing just a bit of "backtracking"­ (direct route would be about a mile). This is a *very* leisurely walk; more of an excuse to get to the Festival.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
