Highlights of the South with Sheryl Neckritz and Lisa Kleiman

June 3, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at the top of the 100 Steps

Come along on this exploration of the highlights of one of the quietest parts of the Wissahickon – the southern end. We’ll hike by some of the biggest tulip poplars in the park, visit the exquisite (and haunted?) Hermitage Mansion, and see the mysterious Hermit’s Cave. We’ll also check out “100 steps” – the impressive 100+ year old granite staircase. Are there actually 100 steps there? Join us and find out! No dogs, please, other than service dogs.

Distance: 3.5 miles

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