  • Explore The Wild Wissahickon
    3 hours, 7-10 miles, hilly. Option to go 1 hour longer. Each monthly we forge a unique route. Over 50 miles of trails to choose from. Please CLICK HERE (http://www.meetup.com/HikingAroundPhilly/pages/Important_Information_About_Each_Hike/) before rsvping. Join me to explore trails less traveled in the wild (I saw a ferocious chipmunk the other day) Wissahickon Creek part of Fairmount Park. We hike up and down the Wissahickon gorge which cuts through the middle of the park. If you have never hiked in this area you will be in for a surprise. It's like having Maine-Acadia in Philadelphia. We hike at a moderate pace for about 3 to 4 hours covering 7-10 miles. The terrain is hilly with lots of ups and downs. Each month I forge a different route, or get lost in another area, depending on your point of view. This is not a hike for those who want to go straight down one trail. We go up, down, around, back, hit dead ends, reverse course, and so on. CAUTION: Hilly Hike Warning. If you haven't recently hiked at least 7 miles in this type of terrain, then you should first try one of our shorter duration hikes.

  • Ocean City South Beach Boardwalk Hike
    4-6 hours with lunch, 10-12 miles, beach, boardwalk, some streets Please CLICK HERE before rsvping. Walking down the shore off-season is really fun. Parking is no issue.

We'll walk down the curvy beach area along the bay till we reach the ocean. Numerous sand bars make the area inviting and interesting. Sometimes we head in the opposite direction towards the beach at Strathmere. After 2-3 hours of hiking we'll drive to Piccini restaurant, 12th and West Ave, for lunch. After lunch we'll walk the boardwalk till 3-4 pm always stopping at Johnson's Popcorn. Often we'll do the entire boardwalk. Caution: You should be able to walk 3-4 hours without much of a break.
