Allentown Hiking Club (AHC) is turning 86 years old. We’re going to celebrate by hosting a number of hikes on portions of the Appalachian Trail maintained by the club. You can choose a hike from a number of events listed on our website or a corresponding posting on Meetup for this same day. On this particular hike, we will meet in the morning at Blue Mountain Summit Restaurant. We’ll shuttle to the Lehigh Gap Nature Center and hike back to our cars parked at Bake Oven Knob. We’ll pass by the Outerbridge Shelter (which the club maintains). We’ll take the scenic trail and pass over the Bake Oven Knob natural formations.
We’ll be doing this hike at a 2.5 mph avg pace (that’s with breaks), finishing in time for the 4:30pm party. This is a shuttle hike, so please be prepared to drive people in your car if asked by the hike leader.
After the hike, many of us will be going to Blue Mountain Summit Restaurant for dinner and a party. Details for this event are listed in a separate posting on this website and on Meetup. This will be a great time, and we hope you can join us!! SEATS ARE LIMITED FOR THE DINNER. YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER AND PAY FOR THE DINNER EVENT BEFORE 11/27/17. You can do so on Meetup at https://www.meetup.com/Allentown-Hiking-Club-Meetup-Group/events/244554432/ If you are NOT registered on Meetup, contact Karen Gradel for information on how to reserve your spot for dinner.
