CANCELED – The Wissahickon Is a Nostalgic World as the Leaves Come Down with Bruce Wagner

October 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This event has been canceled due to impending weather.

With an early start we can enjoy some Autumn chill and then walk along Forbidden Drive to see scenes of a bygone age before crossing the Creek to enjoy different images of Autumn reflected in the water and sunlight illuminating leaves in whatever “Fall Paintbook” 2018 offers us. We will take a leisurely pace and our trails across the Creek are sometimes a little rocky. Wear good walking shoes and jackets or sweaters that can accommodate the changing winds and temperatures October presents.  Bring a camera.  We’re looking for colorful scenes. Children, accompanied by a responsible adult, are welcome so long as their parents believe they can manage themselves, the trails, the hills, and needs of other walkers.  For further information contact Bruce at Impossible rains cancel.
ATC miles: 3-5 miles, depending on group
Difficulty: Easy to 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.
