***For those interested, this event will be followed by dinner on the deck at the Tavern at Valley Forge on Trooper Rd.***
Please join us for a brisk paced six mile hike every Thursday at 6.30 pm at Lower Perkiomen Valley Park in Oaks. This is a mostly flat six mile hike. Some hikes are out and back and others are loops. We alternate between four different routes/hikes and
generally repeat a route once every month. This hike is open to hikers of all levels including new members and beginners. If you are not up to doing the full six miles you can stop and back track at any time you choose. Since this hike is done in the Fall, Winter and Spring all or part of the hike is done in the dark. Please bring water and wear appropriate layers. Heavy rain, sleet, or snow cancels.
Unfortunately, given the darkening evening, dogs on leashes have presented a tripping hazard in the past and will not be permitted until we return to Valley Forge in the Spring.
