Saturday, March 2
Park near and meet at the trailhead near the intersection of Park Line Drive and Hortter Street. Duration: 3 hours. Distance: 5.5 miles. Look for early signs of the Park “waking up” for spring as we roam up and down both sides of the Wissahickon Gorge, traversing sections of the Park’s three main hiking trails. Along the way we will discuss geology as we pass amazing ancient rock formations. We will also take in such sights as the undersides of the historic Walnut Lane Bridge, a bullfrog pond, Cresheim Creek, Devil’s Pool, the Fingerspan Bridge, an old springhouse, and a cave. We will top it all off with a commanding view from atop Mom Rinker’s Rock, alongside the Toleration Statue, evergreen mountain laurel, and towering, formidable chestnut oaks.
Please wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired.
