Hiking the Wissahickon in the winter is a unique experience. When most of the leaves are down, we can see clearly from one side of the gorge to the other. Join Andi, Debbie, and Jim on this approximately 4 mile hike as we see what the flora and fauna of the forest looks like in January and visit some places of historical interest. There are some steep and rocky areas; children 12 years of age and older are welcome, but no dogs (aside from service animals) please.
Distance: 3.5 Miles
