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 at a moderate pace for about 3 to 3.5 hours. 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.

When we do not have a picnic or barbeque after the hike, we often head to Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting which has everything from beer and burgers, to pizza, to mexican, to any other type of food.

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. Area is HILLY; maybe some BUSHWHACKING.
