What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Hike Ft Washington state park. We’ll meet at the hawk observation tower and walk from there. Parking lot 5. Some hills so be able to walk 2-3 miles with an upward slope at an easy pace. Dress for the weather with comfortable shoes. Paved trails this time. Expected highs at 52 Saturday. A month from now, that will seem warm, so let’s go explore. Binoculars optional. Bathrooms available.
This is one of the nicer "something for everyone" parks that I've seen.
There are two loop trails starting from the same parking lot. One goes around a small lake (1.9 miles). The other goes through some wooded areas and past athletic fields (1.4 miles). Both are paved. I'm going to do both trails (3.3 miles total), but if some of you want to stop after the first trail that will be fine. There are no significant hills. Leashed dogs are welcome.
We'll meet in the parking lot near the restrooms. I'll probably be wearing a floppy gray hat.
If you can't find us, call me at[masked].

This is a paved trail that runs from the edge of Lorimer park to the Delaware River. The trail is about ten miles long, but we'll just walk the first two, then turn back. Total distance will be four miles.
There are several short hills, some of which are fairly steep. The trail runs alongside the Pennypack creek and provides some really beautiful views. There are lots of trees which provide shade over most of the trail.
We'll meet in the parking lot near the restrooms.
Leashed dogs are welcome.
