  • Forbidden Drive and Northwestern Avenue (map)

Meet at The Cedars House Cafe on Forbidden Drive ( Note: GPS is not accurate for this location; it is one block south of the intersection of Northwestern Ave, Thomas & Andorra Rds.)

Join us for a PowerPoint presentation on the historic roads and bridges of the Wissahickon. Veteran and all-star Trail Ambassador, Sarah West, will be sharing her knowledge on the historic past of the Wissahickon.

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired. Unless otherwise noted, children over six are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions.
