CANCELED: Summer Solstice at the Lost Cave of the Wissahickon with Kris Soffa

June 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This event has been canceled due to the heat advisory. Stay cool, folks!

Join the Wild Women of the Wissahickon in a Summer Solstice adventure to “The Lost Cave” of America’s first doomsday cult. What inspired Johannes Kelpius to lead his band of 40 men here to the “Hermit’s Glen” at the furthest end of the known world in 1694? Will the Hermit appear on this, the longest day and anniversary of the cult’s arrival in the new world? Come prepared to walk in the gloaming twilight on uneven paths and bring a flashlight.

This hike is appropriate for ages 12 and up.

Distance: 1 mile

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.

Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions. Service animals are always welcome. For more information contact Marisa Miller at Visit for updates.
