This week's route will follow the delightful Pennypack Trail, mostly in Montgomery County although we will review the trail's ongoing development into Bucks County. The trail's northward continuation has met with some political resistance, but on this ride we will review how it successfully proceeds southward & allows for many miles of wonderful outdoor enjoyment -- all the way to the Delaware River, in fact! Our route will only cover about 12 miles, out-and-back.
This annual family-friendly fall celebration offers hayrides, face painting, live music, and more! Everyone is encouraged to come in costume.

Fairmount Water Works photographer-educator Sandy Sorlien leads a walk interpreting remnants of the 108-mile Schuylkill Navigation system along the Roxborough and Manayunk stretches of the river. This walk is a complement to Sandy’s lecture at the University of Nature, but either event stands alone.
Location: Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education
