Big Rocks and Big Trees Part 4 with Lisa Myers

February 4, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Crefeld Street Trailhead at Lavender Trail

This hike will take us into a quieter area of the park where we will loop through the Lavender and Orange Trails and some connector trails in between. We will see big Birches, Oaks and Tulip trees. Our route will take us along one of the more scenic and interesting tributaries into the Wissahickon where we will cross the creek to examine an interesting rock exposure on the other side. Expect some terrain changes and an obvious creek crossing if it is safe to do so. Please leave dogs and children at home. Service animals always welcome. This hike concludes the Big Rocks Big Trees series of hikes.

Distance: 2.5 miles

Level: Moderate (some inclines and declines, uneven surfaces)
