The Wissahickon in May with Debbie Hoellein, Jim McClory, and Terry Fowler

May 31 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dan Dilanzo Spring 3

Meet at North Mt. Pleasant Place Trailhead

Join Debbie, Jim, and Terry as we hike the Wissahickon in May. This will be at least the 5th FOW hike (not all ours) that goes past the frog pond. It’s fun to go from not seeing them, to seeing tadpoles, to seeing frogs. And we’ll see what the frogs are up to on the last day of May. We will also visit the site of one of the largest mills in colonial North America, walk through a work of art, and see some interesting rocks and plants.

Our 3.5-4 mile route includes some rocky ascents and descents and wet areas, so come prepared. Children 12 years of age and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but no dogs other than service animals, please.

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.
