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

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

Meet at Blue Bell Park

Experience the Wissahickon in January with Andi, Debbie, and Jim. We’ll be able to appreciate the plants that stay green and also the beautiful vistas observable after the leaves fall. And maybe we’ll see and hear the woodpeckers more easily during this winter month.

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 site of the McKinney Quarry. Expect some steep rocky climbs and descents. Children 12 years and older are welcome when accompanied by and adult, but please no dogs except service animals.
