Valentine’s Day Sweetheart of a Hike with Kris Soffa, PA Master Naturalist

February 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at front parking lot of 4900 Ridge Avenue

The Wissahickon is for lovers. Here’s your invitation to put down that remote control and add “nature” to your Valentine’s Day celebration. Join Kris Soffa for this heart healthy walk and learn fascinating facts about the lower Wissahickon Valley. See how far Cupid’s arrow can go as we hike the paved trail from the mouth of the Wissahickon Creek. We’ll pass below the “Lover’s Leap” rocky outcropping and arrive at Forbidden Drive at “Ten Box” ranger station. Dress in layers for “cold weather hiking.” Bring a snack and beverage. Fitness (or ski poles) and non-slip footwear are recommended.

Distance: 2.5 Miles

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. 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.
