Wissahickon Beginners Fitness Trail Hiking - 2 Miles

  • This location is shown only to members

We will meet at the Valley Green Inn (near the snack shack where the benches surround the trees).

 

The hike will start at 6 PM. Please try to make it on time.

 

From there we will do a nice trail loop that has begins with a slightly steep incline. This is great to get the heart rate up for the entirety of the hike. The last half mile will be on Forbidden Drive back to Valley Green. You get a nice view of a dam that we can walk down to, sunlight permitting.

This is a nice after work hike, perfect for those who have to endure sitting at a desk like me. The hike should take about an hour or less total. It's a nice hike to that will burn 185-250 calories.

I generally enter in from Henry Ave, Wises Mill Rd. being the cross street.

    Hey everyone the hike is still on for tomorrow even if it's light rain. Heavy rain / lightning will cancel. Also note parking can be VERY tight there sometimes you can also park at the lot off of Valley Green Road if parking is TOO tight and walk down. I'll be emailing everyone info the next few hours.

      Ugh - there may be scattered t-storms tomorrow afternoon. Do we still hike if the rain's not too heavy?

      Dina, if it's light rain we can still hike - we'll be covered by trees. Heavy downpour will cancel.
