The Cobbs Creek Trail Extension -- An Exploratory Walk

Sunday, May 15th, 2011, 11AM

Description: Plans are afoot to extend the Cobbs Creek Trail as part of the proposed Valley Forge to Heinz Refuge Trail. Join us on an exploratory walk from Haverford Twp to West Philadelphia led by architect and trail designer Bob Thomas, as we see the various possibilities for this portion of the trail, which would travel through Karakung and Cobbs Creek Parks. We'll trace the historic route of the long-lost trail along Cobbs Creek, and will compare today's landscape with that in the 1930's guidebook.

Meet: 11.00 am at Cobbs Creek Park at the NW corner of 63rd and Markets Street adjacent to the SEPTA 63rd Street Market St El Station (you may reach this station via frequent SEPTA service on the El, and bus routes 21 and 31. See ).

Rain: If raining or threatening, tour will be cancelled and rescheduled unless otherwise noted. Watch for future listings at
