The Wissahickon in October

October 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Houston Playground (900 Grakyn Ln).

Observe how the park changes in autumn with Debbie and Jim. We’re hoping to see pretty fall colors as we hike from the meadow to the woods and then back to the meadow. We’ll cross a Covered Bridge, a stone bridge and some smaller bridges over a 4.5 mile hike. There are some strenuous and some rocky sections.
Children 12 years and older are welcome, but no dogs please.

Distance: 4.5 Miles

Level: Difficult

Registration is required for all hikes so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. We ask all event attendees to bring a mask and mask up if a distance of six feet cannot be maintained during the activity. If you or anyone in your household are exhibiting COVID-19 systems, please stay home. More information is at fow.org/covid-19.

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. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions. For more information contact Noah Kulak at kulak@fow.org. Visit www.fow.org for updates.
