Although Bill Stein will probably be unable to join us for this hike (I am hoping he will be able to meet us afterwards), I am reprising the hike he introduced to the group over a year ago. Dena Solomon & I had a chance to familiarize ourselves with the campus and adjoining trails today, and there really is no boring way to go: the campus is beautiful, the town and woods only slightly less so. We will spend between 2 and 4 hours walking, depending on group consensus. We will meet at Swarthmore Station, then walk across Swarthmore College campus, through the adjacent Scott Arboretum to Crum Creek, then back along the creek and through town to the Station. Everyone's welcome to join us for lunch after the hike, venue depends on who's coming. The web site for the arboretum is here:
