Five Trails, One Hike with Debra Brackett & Jean McWilliams
March 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Meet at Courtesy Stable Kiosk (901 E Cathedral Rd, Philadelphia, PA 19128)
Missed the All-Trails Challenge? No problem. Join us for an “abridged” all-trails loop walk that includes five of the major trails in the Wissahickon. We’ll start and finish at the kiosk at Courtesy Stables on Cathedral Road and enjoy the variety of vistas from both sides of the creek. Along the way, we’ll observe points of natural and historic interest, as well as ongoing water management projects. The route includes some steep and rocky ascents and descents and is about 4- 4.5 miles long. Children 12 years of age and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult; no dogs except for service animals, please.
Distance: ~ 4.5 miles
Level: ~Difficult (many inclines and declines, uneven surfaces)
