The Wissahickon in April with Andi Wingert, Debbie Hoellein and Jim McClory

April 14, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at North Mt. Pleasant Place Trailhead (North Mt. Pleasant Rd. and Wissahickon Ave.)

Join Andi, Debbie, and Jim as we explore the Wissahickon in April. Last year the spring ephemerals were in full bloom on our route. Since this winter has been so mild, we moved our hike a week earlier to see if we can catch them blooming again this April. Will we see frogs in the frog pond as we pass the bench and trees dedicated to a beloved trail ambassador? We may see and hear the earliest migrating birds moving back to our area, including phoebes and towhees. As always, our route will include points of interest including a site where gold was not found! The route is approximately 3.5 miles long and includes some rocky ascents and descents. Children 12 years of age and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but please, no dogs except for service animals.

Distance: 3.5 miles

Level: Difficult (some rocky descents and ascents)
