The Zipline Site and Vicinity with Scott Quitel

In the news of late, there has been heated discussion of the pros and cons of a proposed zip line course within Wissahickon Valley Park. Come explore the forest that might someday house the zip line, and consider the potential impacts to the area (positive or negative) that could occur. We’ll observe large beech and tulip poplar trees, interesting forest floor vegetation, and rocky barrens. We’ll also hike a section of the Yellow Trail.

Registration is required and recommended so that you can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or thunder storms. Unless otherwise specified Trail Ambassador hikes use rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Please 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 indicated, children over 7 are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Please email to Sarah Marley, [masked] with any questions.

    I'm sorry, we have already rescheduled this walk 2 times. We would be happy to have you join us for one of our other hikes. We will be posting more in the next few weeks.

    Sorry all - I have to be out of town tomorrow on business and need to cancel. Any possibility of doing this walk Friday night, July 26?

    It sounds interesting and would like to see it.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
