Appetite Builder Walk with Ted Apple & Eric Dahlberg

November 23, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Rittenhouse Town Upper Parking Lot

Join a medium difficulty hike on Thanksgiving morning to build up an appetite for Thanksgiving dinner. We will cover around four miles over beautiful trails in the Wissahickon Park. There will be good views of the creek and the woods. With the leaves mostly gone the views are very different from those seen in the spring and summer. The exact route will be determined based on the weather and participants, but we will start at the parking lot above Rittenhouse Town at the Orange Trail entrance to the trail. (About 0.2 mile from 10 Box entrance off Lincoln Drive.)

Distance: ~3.5 miles

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

Registration is required for all hikes so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. If you or anyone in your household are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home. More information is at

Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Walks are canceled in heavy rain. Service animals are always welcome. For more information, contact Claire Brennan at Visit for updates.
