The Heart of the Park with Scott Quitel

Park and meet at the foot of Rex Avenue, where it enters the Park. In this rigorous hike, we will visit several of the Park’s greatest attractions, including the Indian Statue, Livezey Dam, Shakespeare Rock, Devil’s Pool, the gravity sewer, the Fingerspan bridge, and a hidden cave. The hike lasts about three hours and includes one stream crossing, where Cresheim Creek enters the Wissahickon.

    A beautiful and interesting hike. Scott is a great guide - knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Had a lot of fun; good exercise too.
