Overview

Join the weekly Sunday morning hike starting from Hopewell Furnace. We will hike all trails of both parks from this central location (over multiple weeks!) Expect a moderate pace for around 7 to 9 miles. This hike is AMC rated "vigorous" due to it being over 8 miles long. The rating is also 2C7-9, the same as the past few months. We will take time to stop for breaks at the top of hills and as needed. Expect to wear your mask at circle up, when passing others on the trail and when social distancing is not possible. Keep spaced apart when stopping at breaks so fellow hikers can get a drink or snack as needed. The hike is limited to 10 people total, so please keep your reservations up-to-date. Location: Google search for Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site. The street address is 2 Mark Bird Ln, Elverson, PA 19520. The GPS coordinates are 40.206883,-75.773947.
