    Do you have hikes, for beginners, on Sunday afternoons. Just curious because my schedule is crazy.

    Such a gorgeous evening for a hike in Valley Forge! Everyone really challenged themselves tonight, it was great to see those returning and to meet some new faces. Excellent job Wendy on the 100% attendance and modifications to accommodate the park areas needing to be avoided. I really enjoyed the time spent on Wolfinger tonight!

    Thanks to all for coming out on a beautiful night at Valley Forge! 23 of us hiked Mt Misery 2.75 miles (and yes, Steve, including the Wolfinger Trail!) and the remaining 10 hiked an additional 1.25 miles on Mt. Joy including the switchback /"Twilight Zone" trail. Nice job! Hope to see you all next week!

      Wendy, Wendy, Wendy. What did I tell you about taking credit for Wolfinger! You have to do it going uphill!!! Perhaps Paul and myself can show you how it's done on Wednesday.
