    DESCRIPTION: While the Phillies tune up in the closing days of Spring Training, let's get in shape with a loop hike over the hills of the lower Wissahickon to Laurel Hill. The route will be partly on trails, but partly on pavement taking us along the beautiful River Drives and over the Falls Bridge and the Strawberry Mansion Bridge. Good views of the city from our lunch spot on Laurel Hill. 

    DETAILS: Bring lunch and water. Wear sturdy, comfortable shoes. Refreshments after the hike. 

    DIRECTIONS: Meet at the Walnut Lane Golf Course. From the city take the Kelly Drive, Ridge Ave. West and right on Walnut Lane. After crossing Henry Ave., turn left at the next corner which is Magdalena St. Go into parking lot on the left. For Google directions, use Walnut Lane and Magdalena St. Philadelphia, PA. 

    LEADER: Dave Scheid. Questions contact Dave via Meet Up or by email [masked]

    IMPORTANT: Per PTC standard practice you will be asked to sign a waiver when you arrive at the meeting place. Hikers are expected to follow the PTC hiking guidelines (http://philadelphiatrailclub.org). Please review the hike description and decide if it matches your abilities.

    Is the hike going to be rain or shine? The weather forecast is not looking good for Saturday.

    Hi David, I will make my decision last minute. I already do mud run's and when I hike don't like to hike in mud. I hope to be there but it is contingent on the weather and how much mud. :) Thanks for letting us know.

    Good day, fellow hikers. This hike is definitely going on. I advise wearing sturdy footwear that you don't mind getting muddy. I'll try to minimize the muddy sections but can't totally avoid them either. Guests are also welcome.

    Hi Deborah, I look forward to this hike. I will most likely be bringing one or two people. See you then.

    My mistake! Just did all the listings and forgot to put the mileage and level in. It is on now... 9 miles.

    Hi Dave,
    Look forward to the hike and have hiked these trails before but I have not hiked all winter.
    How many miles will this be?
    Thanks
