Meet at Historic Rittenhouse Town

During a hike from Historic Rittenhouse Town to the Hermit’s Cave and back, we will explore some of the history of the apocalyptic group led by Johannes Kelpius, the Women of the Wilderness. We will explore apocalyptic literature, notions of religious toleration, and some of the early beauty and mystique of early Philadelphia. 2.5 Miles. Difficulty: Moderate. Ages 12+ w/ adult.
