Spring Hike at Valley Forge Park - Valley Stream/Mount Joy
Hiking enthusiast Justin Martino '91 and Scout Leader Charlie Ford '85 invite you to experience some of the best hiking in our region. We will journey past historic farm houses, Tredyffrin's historic Knox Covered Bridge, along Valley Stream and visit Washington’s Headquarters at the halfway point of the hike, followed by hiking Mount Joy, which offers varied terrain, forest flora and fauna.
This gathering (children welcome!) will include a guide at the front and rear to accommodate different rates of enjoyment. The trail can be steep and rocky in sections. Bottled water and granola/energy bars will be provided.
Attendance is free for alumni, families and friends.
Please RSVP by May 9th.

- One guide will be at the front of the group, one guide will remain at the rear of the group, to accommodate different rates of enjoyment.
