Halloween Hike to the Lost Cave of the Wissahickon with Kris Soffa

October 28, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Meet at the Hermitage Mansion (700 Hermit Lane, Philadelphia, PA, 19128)

Join the Wild Women of the Wissahickon on this Twilight adventure to “The Lost Cave” of America’s first doomsday cult, at the edge of the known world. As Halloween approaches, the veil thins and spirits cut loose and roam through the woods. Is it the End of The World? Will the Wizard Kelpius return to his cave to fulfill his prophecy?

Costumes, which will serve as disguises to confuse the nefarious ghouls, are highly suggested. Come prepared to walk over uneven terrain in the failing light of the gloaming. Bring a camera to see if you can catch the likenesses of any apparitions on film!

Level: Difficult (many inclines and declines, uneven surfaces)

Distance: ~1 mile

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
