We will hike from the Township Line Road station (of SEPTA #100 Norristown High Speed Line trolley) to the Haverford Township Heritage Festival, arriving around 12:30pm. On our way there we will look at the trail possibilities and requirements along the Creek on the side opposite the Grange Estate, including a missing Estate bridge that would need to be re-installed for a better connection from the Grange Estate to Manoa Road and the Haverford Trails network along Karakung Drive (which is also part of historic Powder Valley gunpowder producing area). More info about the Heritage Day can be found here: www.haverfordhistoricalsociety.org/news-a-events/[masked]heritagefestival.html The #100 line offers quick return via Penfield/Manoa Road & Beechwood/Brookline stations.
Additional hikes in the Heinz-Valley Forge Future Trail series will be announced through the DCVA newsletter, on www.meetup.com/phillyhikes, and other publications as the summer progresses. We will be looking at a through route for Haverford College, Bryn Mawr and Villanova to reach the popular Radnor Trail, and in later segments we will be looking at options from Strafford to the expanding Chester Valley Trail and for the best way into Valley Forge National Park.
