Exploring Council Rock and More with Lisa Myers

November 20 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Meet at Upper Valley Green Parking Lot (GPS: 71 Valley Green Road).

Join TA Lisa Myers on this Wissahickon geology hike: our destination is the seldom explored Council Rock and its unique formation as well as other prominent rock features of geologic interest along the White Trail. Along the way, we will discuss the types of rocks found in the Wissahickon and the forces that got them there. We will pay a visit to the Indian Statue and talk a little about the history and story behind it. Our return trip will be along a rugged section of the Orange Trail with more rock features to explore. Please leave your dogs and small children at home for this one.

Distance: 2.5 Miles

Level: Difficult
