Join us to explore some hidden trails in Philly's Fairmount Park. The 15 mile route will take us off the bike trails along Kelly and West River Drives and into the woods. These lesser known dirt trails and paved paths will take us past the Philadelphia Art Museum, Rocky Steps, Water Works, Boathouse Row, Lemon Hill, Japanese House, Laurel Hill Cemetery, Please touch Museum, and the beautiful Master Street and Chamounix tunnels from an old Trolley Line.

Although this part of the park is surrounded by the city, there will be few food stops. Please bring lunch and plenty of water. The route will be about 15 miles and should take all day since there is so much to check out. Because it is big loop with the river in between there will be few bailout points.

Meet 8:30am at the Horse stables near the Chamounix Mansion youth hostel. 3250 Chamounix Drive, Philadelphia, PA[masked]
