The Wissahickon in April with Debbie Hoellein and Jim McClory

April 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Walnut Lane Golf Club

Join Debbie and Jim as we hunt for spring ephemerals! Last year we saw spring beauties, mayapples, trout lilies, trillium, and possibly jack-in-the pulpit. Will we be that lucky this year? We’ll also check on what the frogs are doing at the frog pond. We may also visit some points of historical interest on our route.

This hike is a little longer than some of our others, and we will plan to spend about 3 hours on the trails. There are some rocky ascents and descents on the route.

Children 12 years of age and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but please, no dogs except for service animals.

Distance: ~4 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.

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 for updates.
