CANCELLED- Halloween Hike to The Lost Cave of the Wissahickon w/ Kris Soffa and Kevin Eikov
October 30, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This hike is cancelled due to poor trail conditions.
We will be hiking from the southernmost section of the paved trail below Forbidden Drive and up a secluded trail to the Hermit’s Cave of America’s first doomsday cult. As we look for bats and Edgar Allen Poe’s raven, you’ll join The Wild Woman of the Wissahickon on this spooky twilight hike to “The Lost Cave” of America’s first doomsday cult. As witches and goblins roam abroad in the land, other nocturnal creatures may appear. Will we encounter E.A. Poe’s raven, bats, owls and perhaps even an apparition of The Hermit himself? Costumes suggested but not required. Bring a camera. * 2 mile round trip, Moderate difficulty. Note: Restricted age for this hike. Children 12+ with responsible adult welcome.
