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!

Awesome, I too would walk miles for peach sundaes!!
I want that peach icecream! Where do I go, how long do I have to walk (across the Atlantic I bet)… 😉
Get a boat..get it quick Bente!
What a cool idea! I would also go on that hike! Pennsylvania is so beautiful…
That would have been a blast if you could have joined us. Maybe you can make your own sundae at home.
Sounds like a wonderful day… I love hiking and if I could do it and end up with a peach sundae that looks like that, what could be better? It looks delicious! 🙂
It was the best peach sundae I’ve ever had. Thank you so much.
Ha ha ha… this will be a good incentive to go hiking. Good for you!
It really is, although my hips are feeling it today. 🙂
Peaches are so good after a day of hiking or fishing, with or without the ice cream! You even picked the second best “peach” song that I know of. The best is Frank Zappa’s Peaches En Regalia of course.
Only you would think of Frank Zappa. He’s such a crazy dude. I remember seeing him in concert in Gainesville back in the eighties then road tripping down that night to Orlando to see the Rolling Stones that played the next day. Great memories. Thanks!
Funny how often that happens…..you start thinking about something or someone you haven’t done or seen for awhile, and then hey presto…..
Serendipity right? Thanks Mark.
You nailed it with the caption and soundtrack, and of course all the in between bits, peaches make people do crazy things 😉
And these are awesome peaches. Fresh picked off the orchard that morning. Can’t beat that!
I will let you have mine! I think the feeling of peach fuzz on my tongue only happens after a bad night of drinking. Blech! 😛
LOL ! Now you would eat these, they were peeled and had been mixed in sugar. Ooh La la !
I’d walk 10 miles for peaches, as long as it wasn’t 10 miles in Georgia. The humidity there about kills me. 😉 Pennsylvania sounds much more manageable.
I completely understand what you’re saying. When I went to Florida in late July, I totally melted. PA that day was absolutely perfect ! Thank you so much.
Really neat – I’d go on the hike too for that Sundae! That is so cool that it’s become an annual hike – looks like you had a wonderful day ~
We had a fabulous day ! Can’t say life can get any better than it was that day. Thank you so much Mary.
It’s nice to have a gorgeous hike when you can look forward to a wonderful treat at the end.
It’s funny..I swear we walked faster than usual. Actually a couple of us wanted to bail on the hike and go straight to the peaches. 🙂
Oh they were glorious Phil. Wish you could have been there.
Delicious ice creme… 😉
I wish I could send you some Drake. You would think you died and went to heaven.
I reckon you could get me out walking for that peach sundae, looks very good.
I wouldn’t make you..you and I could go straight for the peaches. I did bring 1/2 bushel home to enjoy. 🙂
Who could resist with a peach sundae at the end! Sounds like a great way to spend and end the day! 😉
Truly appreciate your kind comment and visit Beth. It was a peach sundae well worth a 10-mile hike.
