What we're about

Since 1997, we have gathered weekly to explore the wonders of NJ, PA, NY, MD, and DE. The purpose of this group is to promote trail systems in the NY/Philadelphia metropolitan area, as well as other areas of natural and historic significance, through long day hikes. Most hikes are approximately 15 to 20 miles. This group is for people for whom a short hikes and commonly posted places are not enough; people who want to quench the thirst for experience and diversity, and to learn more of the amazing area in which we live, and to do so with a diverse group of people
Here's a promo video about the group by Tom Petrucci

Newtown Trails Neshaminy Watershed Series Loop Hike!

McCaffrey's Food Market - Newtown

Join us for this splendid and diverse loop hike around the Newtown Pennsylvania area, featuring eight different park properties, a college campus, a winery, a covered bridge, a brewery, and more!
The varied terrain is mostly pretty easy, and constantly changing.
This hike marks ten years since Stephen Argentina has joined our group, and we discussed doing one further south where his first hike was, but this one is closer for more people and features some similar terrain and diversity to his first one.
We will meet at 8:30 at the McCaffrey's Market in Newtown. From there, we begin our loop hike by heading west and passing through the Acme lot, and then through the Newtown Township Skate Park. A connecting trail leads to the fields of the high school, which we will follow to the south.
We'll pass through portions of Tyler State Park and the college, Helen Randle Park, Clark Nature Center, Veterans Park, and lots of little development trails.
Along the way, we will visit Rose Bank Winery, and near the end, Iron Hill Brewery.
There's a lot to see on this one, both secluded and suburban, and most of the trails are pretty relaxing. There is one short off trail section planned, and otherwise totally clear.
