CRESHEIM VALLEY TRAIL WORK

Meeting at St. Martin’s Lane Trailhead

The Cresheim Valley is one of the most serene and beautiful areas of  Wissahickon Valley Park. Despite the Cresheim Creek flowing into one of the most popular places in the park (Devil’s Pool), this tranquil tributary is a quiet, less-known gem. The trail system along the Cresheim is in desperate need of attention – and you can help! This Saturday, we’ll be working on trail restoration, improving drainage, and stabilizing tread. Please join us for this fun day to help make this amazing section of the park cleaner, more sustainable, and even more beautiful.
