Fall Foliage Hike Saturday: Wissahickon Gorge, northern section

Have you ever hiked into a gorge along a cascading stream through a gorgeous glen? Have you ever faced the Leni-Lenape chief who still stands at Council Rock? Have you walked through a covered bridge or across stepping stones in a creek bed?

On Saturday, you're invited to a FALL FOLIAGE HIKE at Philadelphia's Wissahickon Gorge - northern section. I can't guarantee the leaves will be blazing at full force, but I can promise a beautiful hike in a quiet and dreamy part of the surprisingly rural-feeling urban park.

Meet us at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 5, 2013, at Starbucks in Chestnut Hill (8515 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA). 

NOTE (Here come the musts!): You must be able to walk at least five miles, must wear sturdy shoes for walking on dirt and rocks, and must carry enough water and snacks for a day-long activity.

We will be exiting the park by 4 p.m. There are multiple exit options along the way, but we will plan on exiting the park by 4 p.m., returning to Chestnut Hill near our starting point. It is convenient that both Chestnut Hill East and Chestnut Hill West SEPTA Regional Rail stations are accessible near entrance and exit trail heads!

HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL THERE! DM me for more information. SHARE with friends on social media.
