Trails Less Traveled: Fingerspan Bridge with Gerry Schweiger

August 18, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Meet at the corner of Mt. Pleasant Place and N. Mt. Pleasant Road. (Park on N. Mt. Pleasant between Wissahickon Avenue and Mt. Pleasant Place.)

We will visit Jody Pinto’s spectacular work of art that doubles as a functioning bridge over a 50 foot chasm in the Orange Trail. From there we’ll make a very difficult climb over a connector trail to Climber’s Rock for a spectacular view of the Creek.

Level: Moderate +.

Duration: 3.25 Miles

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.
