As with the other events in this series, please note that this is a ONE-WAY hike. We will finish our hike at the Grange Estate; all of their buildings will be open that day. The NHSL #100 trolley is available for quick return ($2 or a SEPTA token) to 69th Street and other connections: we will probably use the Penfield/Manoa Road station, although backtracking to the Township Line station is also a possibility. Trains run every half hour, and we will try to time our arrival conveniently: the end time of 2:45pm is an estimate.
We will meet in the main waiting room at SEPTA's 69th Street Terminal (just inside the doors from the street). We will begin by following an old right-of-way through Milbourne to 63rd Street, where we will meet any latecomers at 11:45, then cross the creek and walk the Sellers Woods trails. As we are leaving Philadelphia and entering Haverford Township, we begin to parallel the Norristown High-Speed Line/#100 trolley with its convenient stops every half-mile.
This is the third in a series exploring a planned "through trail" (connecting with the East Coast Greenway) between the Tinicum National Wildlife Refuge and Valley Forge via Cobbs Creek and the Radnor Trail. Scott Maits will be lead organizer for this series, sharing his knowledge of plans being considered as well as older and more recent history.
