The Allentown Family Health Examiner is pleased to post this notice regarding three fitness events the weekend of January 18 - 19. The events range from beginner to "challenging."

First is a hike along the Walnutport Towpath, planned for 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 18th. Hikers are asked to meet at the Rite Aid in Walnutport (200 South Best Avenue) and to bring their own water and snacks. Hike leader Janet Golub is available to answer questions at 610-767-1287.

Next up is a 2.3-mile walk through the South Mountain Preserve, scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 18th. Hikers are asked to meet at the South Mountain trailhead, 111 Klines Lane in Emmaus.

Finally -- at least, for January -- is a "challenging" hike from the Hamburg Reservoir to Pinnacle, planned for 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, January 19th. Hikers are asked to bring "plenty of water" and a packed lunch, and to meet at the Hamburg Reservoir trailhead parking lot, at 410 Reservoir Road in Hamburg. Paula Uhrin is available to answer pre-hike questions at 484-951-4299 or via email at
