What we're about
If you recently tried to join and were refused, please "ask" again: I hit the wrong button. My apologies.
Please note: with the exception of contact information, all content is public.
It's been over 9 years now I've had the pleasure of Organizing, & I hope you will enjoy our events at least as much as I do.
Transit-Friendly Hikes and Walks in & near Philadelphia continue to be my focus as Organizer. Mild to moderate hikes predominate, although some events are more challenging, as will be noted. We are also expanding our repertoire to include bike-hikes, and plan at least one camping trip per year (usually to Fire Island National Seashore). Our events are frequently combined with historical info, local "scenes," & (occasionally) others' events. Most events are free of charge, but if you've already joined us for three, please consider contributing financially via the "Chip in" link in the left-hand navigation bar, by contacting me (or any event host) directly to give in person, or by email through paypal. Please *DO* join us whether or not you can afford to donate.
If you haven't uploaded a picture yet, please do so if you can, or otherwise identify yourself in some way in your profile. (I am certainly sympathetic to tech & time crunch issues.) I realize privacy is also a concern in today's world, but appreciate your good faith efforts to establish trust before meeting.
Please always read the *entire* hike description before you RSVP, and utilize the online resources (location links, etc.) before posting or sending questions. You may also check our past calendar for the kinds of events we do and may again. Participation is always at your own risk. If you would like to help out as an Assistant Organizer, whether by offering your own event or collaborating in some other way, please join us for a few hikes first.
Thanks & See You on the Trails!
