FAIRMOUNT PARK EASTSIDE/WESTSIDE LOOP – HIKE

13 miles (full), 9.5miles (late start/early end). Moderate pace. A “backyard” complement to the previous week Fairmount Mansion walk (April 3rd). Hike starts at 16th & Locust St PATCO station up by the NW corner subway exit, and ends at 8th & Market station. Late start option to begin/end at Boat House Row’s Lloyd Hall across from the bottom of Sedgley Drive at 10:30a. Full hike from end of PATCO line up to Schuylkill River Walk and start of Kelly Drive path. Walk up the east side of the river behind Fairmount mansions on Boxer’s trail and cross Strawberry Mansion Bridge . We’ll then proceed down the west side of Fairmount on the old Woodland trolley path to Belmont Plateau, Horticultural Hall with Japanese Tea House, and Memorial Hall (Please Touch Museum), Cedar Grove and Sweet Briar Mansions not covered in the Fairmount Mansion walk, then back to the Art Museum. Full return trip passes through Reading Terminal Market for the leader’s pleasure before ending at 8th & Market PATCO station.

    Good crew. Sunny, a little warmer than expected, and not the pines. Bassette's Ice Cream in Reading Terminal was the reward. Too bad the beignets were sold out.
