TLT X: The Houston Statue & Monoshone Trail with Gerry Schweiger

December 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Meet at Johnson St. between Lincoln Dr. and Wissahickon Av.  Johnson is one way between Wissahickon Av. and Lincoln Dr. so enter Johnson from Wissahickon.  Park on Johnson as close as possible to Lincoln.

Of the 3 statues remaining in the Park, only one is never visited.  The statue of Park benefactor, Henry Houston, is strangled by the Lincoln Dr. traffic patterns.  Using the Monoshone Trail and a secret handshake neighborhood trail we will visit Houston at his Harvey St. lair (location) avoiding Lincoln Dr.’s hair raising traffic.

ATC miles: 3 miles

Difficulty: Moderate+

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. For more information contact Cesali Renn at renn@fow.org. Visit www.fow.org for updates.
