High on the Hill, Low on the Roads with Bruce Wagner
April 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Meet at Valley Green Inn
A hike on the best of the Wissahickon trails, with the possibility of a whole bunch of spring floral treats (can’t tell till we see what kind of Spring we have). We’ll walk the Yellow Trail at the top of the Western Bank, see the superb trail work that’s been done on that trail and see the re-imagined Gorgas Run water route and new plant installations. Coming home on Forbidden Drive we’ll see people and identify the plants that line the road in the Spring. This walk is of moderate-plus difficulty, but the pace will be slow so we can see what’s around us. Wear sturdy footwear, bring water, pay attention to the likelihood of April Showers.
Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired. Unless otherwise noted, children over six are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions.
