9 mi. Class 2 Intermediate (Rolling hills with some rocks on trail)
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.
