Enjoy an afternoon hike (5-6 miles) in the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust, a conservancy headquartered 15 miles northeast of Philadelphia in Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania. The 812-acre preserve has expanded its trails and added railbed trails along its creek. The hike is moderately strenuous with trails wide enough to walk more than single file—giving plenty of opportunity for socializing.

Post-hike, we can seek refreshments at a local restaurant (TBD).

The hike will be led by Susan Charkes AB '79, author of the books Best Day Hikes near Philadelphia (2010) and Outdoors with Kids—Philadelphia (2013).

Meet in the parking lot at 1:00pm. (Restrooms are available at the parking lot.)

Wear sturdy footwear. Bring snacks, water and sun protection.

Families welcome!

No dogs; no strollers; no bikes.
