Rescheduled: The Wissahickon in January with Debbie Hoellein & Jim McClory

January 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This event has been rescheduled to 2/1, click here to register for the new date.

One reason we like hiking in the winter is that you can see clear across the Wissahickon. Join Debbie and Jim on our January hike when we will not only see beautiful vistas, but also how the flora changes with the cold weather, while beautiful rocks stay the same. And what type of fauna will we encounter in January? Our route to the other side of Lincoln Drive also takes us through Historic Rittenhouse Town, the site of the McKinney Quarry, and Saylor Grove. This approximately 3.5-4 mile route has some rocky ascents and descents. Children 12 years of age and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but no dogs except for service animals, please.

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

Distance: ~3.5 miles

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

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 Claire Brennan at Visit for updates.
