The "Half as Long as Paul's Hike" at Valley Forge : Mt. Misery and Mt Joy

  • Jun 14, 2014 · 8:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Note: This is NOT the 15 mile Sunday weekly workout that Paul hosts.

Please join me for a  moderate paced hike in Valley Forge Park. Note the earlier start time due to summer being here; hoping to avoid the  mid day heat with an earlier start time.  This hike is for moderate to advanced hikers due to hills, distance and pace.  We will hike Mt Misery then Mt Joy.  We will hike about 7 to 9 miles.

We will meet at 8:15 AM and depart promptly at 8:30 AM. 


Dogs on a leash are welcome.

Hike Starting Location and Rally Point:  **** NOTE THIS IS A DIFFERENT MEETING SPOT. We'll Meet at The General Knox Parking Area (GPS:[masked], [masked]) on Valley Creek Road (Route 252) a Quarter Mile South of the Knox Covered Bridge on Valley Creek Road (Route 252).

Arrival and Start Times: Please meet us at 8:15 AM. We will start hiking promptly at 8:30 AM!!  Plan on about 3.5 hours for the hike. My goal is to be done around noon time so you can enjoy the rest of your Saturday.

    Sorry I missed this hiking because I went to different parking lot. I went to MT.joy trial myself at the end. I am glad I didn't lost there and meet Fran at the bathroom. What a nice day for hiking!
