Highlights of the South with Sheryl Neckritz, Lisa Kleiman & Hallam Harper

November 4, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at the top of 100 Steps

Come see the southern section of the Wissahickon in all its colorful autumn glory! We will begin at the enigmatic 100 steps, hike past some of the park’s biggest tulip trees, visit the Hermit’s Cave, and see the splendid (and haunted?) Hermitage Mansion. The next stops will be Lovers’ Leap overlook and Historic Rittenhouse Town. Special guest Trail Ambassador and “rock hound” Hallam Harper will tell us all about the rocks along the way. Recommended for ages 12+

Distance: ~3.5 miles

Level: Difficult (many 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.
