Leave No Trace History Hike with Brad Maule

July 23, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Valley Green Inn.

As part of the Leave No Trace Hot Spot, join FOW for a hike through the Cresheim Valley and the Wissahickon’s industrial past. We’ll meet at Valley Green Inn for a 3-mile hike with stops at multiple old mills, a 17th-century geographic marker, a stand of native pine trees, and arguably the most beautiful scene in Philadelphia. We’ll consider how natural conservation informed Philadelphia’s earliest parkland efforts, look at the stewardship work FOW has done to protect the Wissahickon for nearly 100 years, and think through best practices as we look to the future. This hike is moderately difficult, so wear sturdy boots and be prepared for some elevation gain.

Distance: 4 miles

Level: Moderately difficult

Registration for this event is at capacity. Please contact for more information.
