Big Rocks Big Trees with Lisa Myers

February 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Meet at Mt. Airy Trailhead

Unusual Tree Species not native to this area greet us in the beginning of this hike along the White Trail. We continue along the high ridge of the White Trail to take in all the different species and make our way to Climbers Rock. From here we continue down to the Orange Trail, passing Glen Fern, Livezey Mill Ruins and the Fingerspan Bridge. We’ll enjoy great views of the creek and see two of the largest rock exposures in the Wissahickon on our return. This hike is intended for adults, please leave dogs at home.

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. We ask all event attendees to bring a mask and mask up if a distance of six feet cannot be maintained during the activity.
