Winter Wonderland in the Wissahickon with Kris Soffa

January 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at The Cedars House Cafe on Forbidden Drive ( Note: GPS is not accurate for this location; it is one block south of the intersection of Northwestern Ave, Thomas & Andorra Rds.)

Do you love frosty mornings, seeing your breath and hiking in cold weather? Get your daily dose of “nature” and join us for a Winter walk on Forbidden Drive. We’ll hike along Forbidden Drive from The Cedar’s House Cafe to the Covered Bridge and back. You’ll learn fun facts about what is happening in the woods & in the Creek even while the wintry Wissahickon appears to be sleeping. Dress in layers for “cold weather hiking”. Bring a snack and beverage. Fitness (or Ski Poles) and non-slip footwear are recommended. Distance: 2 miles round trip

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.
