Join me to explore trails less traveled in the wild (I saw a ferocious chipmunk the other day) Wissahickon Creek part of Fairmount Park.
We hike at a moderate pace for about 2.5 to 3.5 hours. The terrain is hilly with lots of ups and downs. Each month I forge a different route or get lost in another area depending on your point of view. This is not a hike for those who want to go straight down one trail. We go up, down, around, back, hit dead ends, reverse course, and so on.
In warm weather we often eat outside at Top of the Hill which is just a few blocks away. In winter we often head to Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting which has everything from beer and burgers, to pizza, to mexican, to any other type of food.
CAUTIONs: If you haven't recently hiked at least 7 miles, then you should first try one of our shorter duration hikes. Area is HILLY; maybe some BUSHWHACKING.
