Saturday May 30, 2015 - Historic Poole Forge

5-7 casual miles

This relaxing road walk will start and finish at Poole Forge park, off of Rt. 23, Churchtown and amble along quiet country roads through Amish farm land. We will likely see farmers “working” their fields. If we are in luck, a resident historian will brief us on the history of the area and the various sites along the way. The actual hike distance will be determined by group preference. Lunch after the walk is an option. Rain Cancels!
Meeting place: 10:00 am, Poole Forge Park on Rt. 23, look for the parking area adjacent to the covered bridge
Directions (1): From Rt. 625 South, turn east onto Rt. 23 then continue 2.5 miles and turn right (across from Landis Computer) into Poole Forge Park
