This walk is just for the seniors who think they can’t walk the Wissahickon Woods. We will follow the paths from VGI to Rex Ave at a pace that assures that everyone can be comfortable. On the way, we will learn some about the Wissahickon Valley, and make sure we stop to smell the roses. Be sure to wear sturdy footwear (there’s always rocks), and have a windbreaker and water. If you use a walking stick, this is a good hike for bringing it. It offers support and stability.
This ride, taking place entirely on trails, leads to a lovely, secluded, and private campsite in a beautiful portion of Pennsylvania forest. This will be a WTF (women, trans, and femme) only weekend and led by experienced WTF guides! This trip will be about 37 miles each way!
Glen Fern is a gorgeous section of the park that houses some fascinating history and is surrounded by a lot of popular points of interest: Valley Green Inn, Devil’s Pool, Climber’s Rock, the Fingerspan Bridge, and more! That it exists in the middle of so many heavily visited locations means that there is always work to be done in the area. This Saturday, we will be working on a variety of projects including trail improvements, invasive plant removal, and litter clean-up. Please join us for this fun day to help make this amazing section of the park cleaner, more sustainable, and even more beautiful.
Join Ruth Pfeffer for an informative and fun program on our avian friends that reside, nest, or migrate through our beloved Wissahickon.

Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. This hike is adults only.
