Hike at John Heinz Wildlife Refuge!

  • Nov 17, 2013 · 10:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Meet at 10:45 -- leaving PROMPTLY at 11:12!

This is a flat "hike," we won't be going uphill or through any treacherous wooded paths.

We will be walking about 8 miles, so around 3-4 hours.

Bring your cameras, as you are bound to run into wildlife from herons to turtles to foxes...

Dogs are welcome, you will have plenty of room for them on this hike as we are not on tiny wooded paths.

Comment if you can/need carpooling.  John Heinz is near a huge public transportation hub as well.

    Managed to wake up late and hit a hilarious amount of traffic and detours, so I decided to just check out the marathon.

    Have fun everyone!

    As a reminder please show up on time at 10:45am and we will start hiking at 11:12am sharp! If u come late we will have no choice but to leave u behind since it wouldnt be fair for those who arrive here early and we have to wait for u. Overall hope u understand. Read our description and comments on meetup for more infos.

    FYI, for those carless (like me) you can get to it via the Eastwick train stop on the airport line with a short walk - or so I've heard. This was my plan for going although I can't make it anymore.

    Car-less person here. If any other folks want to split a Philly Car Share (or anyone with a car wants free gas in exchange for transport), contact me! While I normally bike everywhere, this is a little far. :-o

    Sorry I had a work commitment come up unexpectedly so I won't be able to make the hike. I hope to make it to more events like this in the future!

    there is the possibility that I know someone who might want to come out with me for this as they do running and other outdoor activities. I'll know by Friday. If she does, we would appreciate a ride to and from Philly. I'll keep everyone posted & adjust my rsvp accordingly.
