  • This location is shown only to members

Each and every time I visit this venue I find something new. With the map I am more comfortable but still not completely confident. I intend to do an exploratory hike that has no planned route; we will just set off into a random direction and hope to return to where from we started.

Time: Promptly at 09:00.

D/T: ~10 Miles/~4 hours. We should be done by 13:00. Operative word: should.

Pace: Quick. It will not be a race, but I would like to maintain a solid pace.

Elevation: >1,000’ this is the other side of the city from John Heinz.

Difficulty: This is not an intense mountain climb, but it is not meant to be a stroll in the park either.

Attendance: Limited. Basically I want to explore this area. If a few people tag along - cool, but I do not want to be responsible for entertaining a large group.

    I counted 11 people when we were on the hike but I can only account for 10 ... who was #11? It was that Asian Chick right? what was her name?

      Mmh, she must have used another name when she registered for the group? cause "Lorna" isn't in the list of members...

    As for parking, I THINK we can park in the SEPTA parking lot on weekends for free, but I'm NOT completely certain. Part of the reason for this trip was to figure this issue out. if we cannot park IN the lot we'll have to find something near it.

    Hey Matt, my friend and I had been hiking for a while. I know the even is full, but we won't bring you much trouble. Would it be ok if we tag along?
