The Wissahickon in June with Andi Wingert, Debbie Hoellein and Jim McClory

June 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at North Mt. Pleasant Place Trailhead 

Join Andi, Debbie, and Jim as we hike the Wissahickon in June. We hope to see plenty of frogs at the Frog Pond along with other fauna and flora in the park as we anticipate summer. We’ll also be visiting some historical points of interest, walking through a work of art, and admiring some beautiful rocks. Expect some rocky ascents and descents on our 3.5-4 mile route. Although we won’t be fording any streams, we will be hiking over some rocky wet areas. Children 12 years of age and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but no dogs other than service animals please.

Distance: 3.5 Miles

Level:Difficult (many inclines and declines, uneven surfaces)

Audience: Adults and children 12 and over
