“ This group dispels the idea that Philadelphians are not friendly and that hiking can only happen in the woods! On my first hike, everyone was so welcoming and easy to talk to and our guide, Scott, was a font of information about the history of PA. Best of all, this group knows that starting and ending in a pub is the way to hike Philly. ”

(As Assistant Organizer, I began working on developing transit-friendly hikes, and that will continue to be my focus as Organizer: please contact me if you&amp;amp;amp;#039;re interested in developing this concept.) Whether you want to revisit a place you already know, see a place you&amp;amp;amp;#039;ve never been, or share your newest discoveries with others, we&amp;amp;amp;#039;d love for you to join us. ”
