AMC 1st Fridays Along the Delaware - Backroads of Bucks County II

Remind me of this event in:




Set Reminder
Cancel

Program Location: Virginia Forrest Recreation Area, 3292 River Rd. (PA-32), New Hope, PA.

Join park educator and Appalachian Mountain Club leader Ian Kindle for a short 5-6 mile hike on back roads of Solebury, PA.

We'll meet at the Delaware Canal State Park Virginia Forrest Recreation Area parking lot on River Rd (PA-32), 1.3 miles north of PA-263 and the Stockton River Bridge.

This will be an out and back again hike along some beautiful back roads in Solebury Township. We'll hike from the Delaware Canal towpath across rolling hills and through secluded stream valleys (Paxon Hill and Cutalossa Roads). The hike will be on paved and dirt roads, beginning and ending at Virginia Forrest Recreation Area. A small portion of the hike will be along PA-32 (River Rd.) but mostly we'll be hiking quieter back roads through the Solebury countryside. Some of the terrain involves gradual hills, about 300 ft up and down several times.

Hike will be weather dependent and will cancel in the event of cold, rainy weather or poor driving conditions, but will go on in light snow. Dress in non-cotton layers for changeable winter conditions. Bringing water, a hearty snack or lunch, and wearing bright colors for traffic visibility is recommended. Binoculars will also be helpful for getting to look at the resident birds up close. Call the number below for go/no go determination by 8:30 AM if weather is questionable.

Join park educator and Appalachian Mountain Club leader Ian Kindle on Valentine's Day morning on a moderately paced 4-6 mile hike along a lovely section of the level Delaware Canal towpath near Washington Crossing Historic Park. Bringing a date is optional, but you're sure to find plenty to love about the Delaware Canal towpath trail, a recreational and historic gem that parallels the Delaware River for 60 miles.

Meet at 10 AM in the parking lot adjacent to the Delaware Canal on PA-532 in Washington Crossing. This is the opposite side of the park from the visitor center and historic buildings. We'll walk a few miles north along the towpath to enjoy farm fields and river views, then turn around and head back again. Option to extend the hike on the way back by walking a loop through Washington Crossing Historic Park.

Restrooms are not available at our starting location, so come early if you want to make a pit stop at the park visitor center or a local business. Wear warm non-cotton layers for changeable winter weather. Bring water and lunch or a hearty snack. Binoculars or a camera are also recommended.

Hike cancels in the event of cold, rainy weather or poor driving conditions but will continue in light snow. If ample snow is on the ground a limited number of loaner snowshoes will be available to borrow or BYO snowshoes or XC skis. If unsure about weather, contact leader by 8:30 AM on day of hike for a go/no go determination.

OK, admit it. You were eagerly awaiting word recently from a famous groundhog as to whether spring would come early. In the fall you watch out for wooly bear caterpillars, and look for where hornets built their nests. In today’s digital world, with weather forecasts instantly at our fingertips, we still cling to customs from the past. From a groundhog and wooly bear caterpillar, to geese, cows, hornet, and other animals, we still look to many animals to predict the weather.

Where these traditions came from will be presented in this off-beat program into the animal world. We will also look into the animals themselves, to learn about their behaviors and habits that lead people to believe they can foretell the weather. And, maybe, we will look to see if there is anything to the claims these animals can predict the weather!

[Pre-registration is appreciated. Please click the blue registration button to sign up for this program.]

Come join us on this moderately paced 4 - 5 mile towpath hike. While it might seem that most creatures have either migrated or hibernated for the winter, we might just get lucky and hear a Screech Owl or observe a Red Fox hunting for its dinner!

We will meet at the park office, then hike south towards the Giving Pond as the sun is setting. After an optional loop around the 90-acre pond to watch the full moon rising, we will return to the park office for some hot chocolate or tea!

Please dress warmly in non-cotton layers & wear sturdy shoes. A limited number of loaner snowshoes will be available free-of-charge if there is sufficient snow on the towpath.

Contact Katie Martens at (610) 982-0161 or kmartens@pa.gov for more information.
