Hiking with Maura the Explorer

August 30, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join FOW Executive Director Maura McCarthy for a hike each month. She will tour a different section of the Wissahickon during each hike and talk about her park experiences, as well as point out any recent improvements by FOW. This month, we’ll hike along Forbidden Drive and tour the Forbidden Drive Streambank Stabilization Project sites.  Bring your hiking shoes and be ready to share your favorite Wissahickon stories with her!

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. Unless otherwise noted, children over six are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions. For more information contact Maeve Pollack at
