It's been nearly 8 years now I've had the pleasure of Organizing, & I hope you will enjoy our events at least as much as I do.
Transit-Friendly Hikes and Walks in (or near) Philadelphia are my personal focus as Organizer: I originally joined this group because of its low-key focus (simple local hikes, within an hour's drive of Philadelphia), and we remain on the mellower side: mild to moderate hikes & walks predominate, as does public transit accessibility, frequently combined with historical info & local "scenes," as well as others' events. Most events are free of charge, but if you've already joined us for three, please consider contributing financially via the "Chip in" link in the left-hand navigation bar, by contacting me (or any event host) directly to give in person, or by email through paypal. Please join us whether or not you can afford to donate, however.
If you haven't uploaded a picture yet, please do so if you can, or otherwise identify yourself in some way in your profile. (I am certainly sympathetic to tech & time crunch issues.) I realize privacy is also a concern in today's world, but appreciate your good faith efforts to establish trust before meeting.
Please always read the *entire* hike description before you RSVP, and utilize the online resources (location links, etc.) before posting or sending questions. You may also check our past calendar for the kinds of events we do and may again. Participation is always at your own risk. If you would like to help out as an Assistant Organizer, whether by offering your own event or collaborating in some other way, please join us for a few hikes first.
