October 30, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Meet at the Ridge Avenue Trailhead Kiosk

Join The Wild Woman of the Wissahickon on this spooky twilight hike to “The Lost Cave” of America’s first doomsday cult. As witches and goblins roam in the land, other nocturnal creatures may appear. Will we encounter Edgar Allen Poe’s raven, bats, owls, and perhaps even an apparition of The Hermit? Costumes suggested but not required. Bring a camera. Chidlren 12+ with responsible adult welcome.

Level: Moderate
Distance: 2 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. For more information contact Maeve Pollack at Visit for updates.

This event has been cancelled due to weather. Please sign up for one of our other amazing hikes!
