Mercer County Park along beautiful Mercer Lake offers many recreational facilities including a volleyball center, basketball courts, a rowing center, a ice skating center, a tennis complex, a disc golf course, regular golf course, softball fields, a cricket field, baseball fields, a dog park, etc. There is also a lot of hiking and biking trails and a nature preserve.
In the winter we can do a neat loop hike around the lake through the golf course and nature preserve. Other times we can do a loop, or loop de loop through some really nice hidden trails that are not around the lake. These are difficult to find. These are the nicest hiking trails in the park.
Caution:You should be able to walk 3-4 hours without much of a break.
To carpool from Hill House (201 W Evergreen Ave, Phila) meet 1 hours 20 minutes before the event. If the hike time changes then the carpool time changes. Each carpooler chips in $6 at the start. Email me ([masked]) 3-4 days in advance and receive a reply.
