Snow or Shine Hike with Brad Maule

This January, February and March, Fairmount Park Conservancy is offering opportunities to get into the woods and discover some of the hidden gems of our park system with a wonderful hike leader, Brad Maule.


Saturday, February 10, 2018


10:00am - 1:00pm


Allen Lane Train Station
Allen Lane and Cresheim Street
Philadelphia, 19119

Enjoy unique hikes through exciting parts of the park you may have not explored before. While we can’t guarantee snow, these hikes will happen no matter what the weather (within reason) – and so we call them our “Snow or Shine” hikes! Please note that these are moderately challenging hikes and we strongly encourage the use of proper hiking shoes, dressing in layers, and packing yourself plenty of water and snacks for the journey!

$10 for non-members
Free for members of Fairmount Park Conservancy (membership starts at $35/year and includes year-round events).

Saturday, 2/10: Wissahickon’s “Greatest Hits” with Brad Maule 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Head for the Wissahickon and join Brad Maule for a loop hike of the park’s greatest hits. We’ll descend the Cresheim Valley, stop at Devil’s Pool, cross Fingerspan, and come back into civilization through Carpenter’s Woods. Meet at Allen Lane train station. Ride the Chestnut Hill West Line there, or you can bike or drive. Parking is available on Cresheim Road, Nippon Street, and Mt Airy Ave near Allen Lane train station. Please do NOT park in the train station, as it is used for the High Point Café inside.

In the event that you sign up for a hike and can no longer make it, please be courteous and let us know ASAP to free up your spot for another happy hiker!
