Some folks (me!) have settled in for a long winter's rest - indoors, our only involvement with the outdoors being our houseplants and the occasional seed catalog as we wait for Spring. If you're made of hardier stock, Schuylkill on the Move has several hikes scheduled this month. Please dress appropriately!
Meet at 806 Valley Road, Pine Knot for a 7 mile hike rated moderate. Hiker Jim will lead this hike from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm to exlore the gorge Trail and Stephen's Road.
Meet at the Auburn Trailhead on Route 895 just before the river for a 4 mile hike rated easy. This hike from 1:00 am to 3:00 pm will feature both nature and history.
If you're more like me, why not join one of the indoor walking clubs springing up around the county?
