Radnor Lake - Moderate Hike - Re-opening of South Cove!

Meeting Time: 4:00 PM
Meeting Place: Trailhead at Granny White Pike/Nature Center entrance
Hike Distance: up to 4.5 miles depending on what group wants to do
Estimated Hike Time: max 2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate

Hike Leaders: Vivien
125 Hiking Rewards points

The South Cove trail re-opens! Come early at 3:00 for the ceremony or at 4:00 for the hike.

We'll start at the Granny White Pike entrance parking lot, and depending on what the group feels like, we can do a mixture of the trails. Kids are certainly welcome, but pets are not allowed on the trails.

Note that on good weather days Radnor parking can get crowded. Please observe all traffic flow and parking rules posted.

Some instructions:

1. DO NOT enter Radnor Lake from the Franklin Road side. You must enter from Granny White Pike/Otter Creek Road because the road is blocked to vehicle traffic through the park. On maps Otter Creek Road looks like a through street for cars but it is not.

2. There is only one parking lot on the Granny White end so it won't be hard to find us. We'll be the crowd of people standing around.

3. There is not a sign for Radnor Lake on Granny White Pike. Look on the map for where Otter Creek Road intersects Granny White Pike and turn there.

    Great hike. All those wheel-barrows full on rocks and dirt were well worth it. Congratulations Lindsay (a.k.a Pebble-slider Hike-no-More) and Jonathan (Old Man MapQuest) on your first hike with NHM.

    Yes there will be a large crowd so I suggest you arrive fairly early to find a parking place and we will meet at 4.

    There may be a large crowd. The Mayor is supposed to be there for an awards ceremony and the official re-opening at 3:00.
