Saturday February 28, 2015 - Coventry Woods


5.5 moderate to strenuous miles

Enjoy a late winter hike in this beautiful North Coventry Township park. Expect some hills to keep warm. We finish on the expanded Love Valley Trail. Wonder what happens here??? Snow will cancel.

Meeting place: 10:00 am, main lot at Coventry Woods

DIRECTIONS (1): Take Rt. 724 east from Birdsboro. About three quarters of a mile past River Bridge Road (the road/bridge leading to Douglassville), turn right onto Unionville Rd. All Type Fence is located at this intersection. Follow Unionville Road 2.1 miles past Temple Church and Shenkel Church. Turn right at St. Peter’s Road, then after about half a mile, turn left into Coventry Woods (Fernbrook Lane is to the right). Parking is just over the crest of the hill.


DIRECTIONS (2): From Rt. 23, take St. Peters Road through St. Peter’s Village and continue for about 4 more miles on St. Peter’s Road. When you see Fernbrook Lane to the left, turn right into Coventry Woods.
