The Wissahickon in June with Andi Wingert and Debbie Hoellein

June 27, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Blue Bell Hill Park

Experience the Wissahickon in June with Andi, Debbie, and Jim. We last did this hike in January when we had beautiful vistas because the leaves were down. This time we will have beautiful flora and hopefully will hear if not see some pretty birds. Our 3.5-4 mile hike will bring us to the East Falls trail on the other side of Lincoln Drive where we will visit the McKinney Quarry. Expect some steep and rocky climbs and descents. Children 12 years and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but please, no dogs except for service animals.

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. If you or anyone in your household are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home. More information is at fow.org/covid-19.

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. Service animals are always welcome. For more information contact Claire Brennan at brennan@fow.org. Visit www.fow.org for updates.
