There is a very popular hike with the hiking club which is known as the “Peach Hike.”
I’ve been having so much fun birding this year that hiking has taken a back seat. Yesterday morning, I started thinking about hiking and how it was overdue for me to return to the trail. My thoughts then moved on to the Peach Hike, and lamented that I probably had missed it as it is already mid-August. Then I received an email from a hiker buddy asking if they would see me today on The Peach Hike. Absolutely YES ! I’d certainly walk 10-miles for some peaches.
This hike is always held during peak peach season in York, Pennsylvania. This wonderful hike serpentines around Lake Redmond, and Lake Williams and begins at William H. Kain County Park. A lovely patch of land around the water reservoir that was established in 1976 and encompasses 1,637 pristine forests and fields.
Following the hike, the group travels a short distance to Brown’s Orchards for Peach Sundaes. It was truly a picture perfect day spent with great friends topped off with a beautiful peach sundae. Life doesn’t get better than this!
Here’s a fun song about Peaches by The Presidents of the United States. This mix has images of all sorts of peach artwork from great masters. Enjoy!
