Trails Less Traveled VIII: Something Old, Something New with Gerry Schweiger

June 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Meet at the “Cherokee” parking lot of Springside Chestnut Hill Academy adjacent to the SCH athletic fields. For GPS and internet: 8015 Cherokee Street Philadelphia, PA 19118. We will visit SCH’s new hiking trails and various other trails that will take us to the Magargee Dam. From there we’ll connect to the abandoned old White Trail and climb to locations overlooking the Hartwell Run gorge and the Wissahickon Creek. NOTE: This hike will include one strenuous climb and difficult footing at the Margaree Dam. Distance: 2.5 miles. Duration: 2.25 hours. Level: moderate.

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 Cesali Renn at Visit for updates.
