Wissahickon Women: Trailblazers in Nature with Susan Hauck & Sheryl Neckritz

March 8 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Hermit Lane Entrance, where Hermit Lane meets the road down to the Hermitage Mansion.

Join us on International Women’s Day for a hike highlighting the impact women have had on the history, conservation and enjoyment of the Wissahickon. We will explore the trails at the southern end of the park and learn about some of the remarkable women, both historic and mystical, who have left their mark on the park, including artists, innkeepers, a revolutionary spy, a biblical spirit, and more.

Distance: ~3.5 miles

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