8480 Hagys Mill Road, Philadelphia, PA
The Schuykill center for environmental education encompasses 340 acres within the city limits of Phila. Located in Roxborough, it truly is a hidden gem. None of the individual trails are very long, but we will combine a few of them together to make a pleasant hike that should take about 2 hours. The terrain is relatively smooth but there are a few HILLS to keep the hike interesting.
Unfortunately, DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE GROUNDS
Admission to the center is FREE but they do accept donations and encourage people to become members if they are interested.
DIRECTIONS: can be found on the website www.schuykillcenter.org
WARNING: The gravel road that leads to the parking lot has some ruts and small potholes so it is best to drive at about 2 miles an hour along that driveway.
We will meet in the parking lot about 9:45 AM and depart promptly at 10:00 AM
