No Bells. No Whistles. No Themes. Just a Walk in the Wissahickon Woods with Bruce Wagner

September 21, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Meet at the Wise’s Mill Parking Lot just above Valley Green Inn

Enjoy an early Autumn walk along the Wissahickon’s Yellow Trail above Forbidden Drive, and then at Gorgas Lane come down to the Drive and walk home. It’s a bit of a climb to get started followed by a stroll along what might be the woodsiest rolling trail in the park. Varying woods, varying terrain, little wooden bridges, park environment restoration – it’s all on this walk. We’ll hike at an easy pace to enjoy the woods. Bring water. Kids welcome if parents are sure they can do the walk.

Level: Moderate
Distance: 3.5-4 miles
No dogs please.

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 Visit for updates.
