  • This location is shown only to members

Hike Level: Intermediate (Distance 4+ miles , some Hills and Pace 2-2.5 mph).   

Total Time: Approximately 2 Hours

IMPORTANT NOTES:

•  When climbing hills, always feel free to take your time and climb at your own pace. We always stop at the top of very steep hills for a rest and water break. 

•   PLEASE REMEMBER TO HYDRATE BEFORE THE HIKE AND BRING PLENTY OF WATER.

•   For those not familiar with Valley Forge Park and the trails surrounding the park...please be prepared for some hills and some rocky terrain on parts of the trails.  Sturdy shoes are recommended. Dress appropriately for weather conditions...including hats and rain gear.

•   Dogs: Always Welcome (A Leash Is Recommended).  Please add a comment if you do plan to bring along your pooch OR if you are ALLERGIC so that everyone is made aware in advance and can plan accordingly.

NOTICE: By attending an event you are agreeing that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY AT ALL TIMES. No member of the group EXCEPT YOURSELF can be held responsible for any damages, accidents, or liabilities incurred while hiking with us.

As always, I want to make it clear that I do plan to lead my hikes always observing Safety First...but also with the intention that these hikes should be fun, enjoyable, relaxing and non-stressful social meetups...with a bit of a work out too.

Let's Go For a Walk! I Look Forward to Seeing You There! ;)
