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

September 16, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Johnson Street between Lincoln Drive and Wissahickon Avenue.

Johnson Street is one way between Lincoln Drive and Wissahickon Avenue. Enter Johnson Street from Wissahickon Avenue.

Join Andi, Debbie, and Jim as they lead a different type of hike in September. Besides exploring the changes in flora and fauna as we anticipate autumn, we will hike to the Henry Houston Statue, through what was once the Houston Ramble. This hike will be done in memory of Gerry Schweiger who led a similar “Trails less Travelled” hike to the statue in the past. We will also visit Rittenhouse Town and Thomas Mansion and along our course we will be met by David Bower who will explain the history of these parts of the Wissahickon as only he can.
Be prepared for some uneven and rocky surfaces on our 3 mile hike. Children 12 years of age are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but no dogs except for service dogs, please.

Distance: 3 miles

Level: Difficult (many inclines and declines, uneven surfaces)
