The Wissahickon in September with Debbie Hoellein & Jim McClory

September 29, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Forbidden Drive and Northwestern Avenue

Join Jim and Debbie as we hike the Wissahickon in September. Let’s experience the changes in the park during early autumn. It should be cooler than when we last did this hike in August of 2022. As always, we will see some points of historical and natural interest as we walk trails on both sides of the Wissahickon in the northern part of the park. Our route includes some steep and rocky ascents and descents and is about 3.5- 4 miles long. Children 12 years of age and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but no dogs except for service animals, please.

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. 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.
