Meet at The Cedars House Cafe, Note: GPS is not accurate for this location

In celebration of Mother’s Day come out and hike in The Wissahickon.  FOW preserves this gorgeous National Natural Landmark park in many amazing ways. As we hike you’ll learn fun ways to participate and see examples of many of FOW ‘s sustainable projects. We’ll hike a loop from the Cedar’s House Cafe to the Covered Bridge and back, along the Orange Trail and Forbidden Drive.

Distance: 2 miles
Level: Moderate
