CONFLUENCE HIKE Saturday, December 21st 10:00am – 1:00pm 
Meets at Fairmount Park parking lot, 4900 Ridge Ave (next to Wissahickon Transportation Center). 11 buses stop here in each direction. SEPTA Manayunk/Norristown train arrives just up the hill. The lowest reach of the Wissahickon is lined with magic as it heads into the Schuylkill. This hike sews together geography, industrial history, mystic monks, Norman Rockwell, and a park that doesn’t exist yet with the same thread. Total length is around 4.5 miles and 2.5 hours; there are some challenging hills, so wear sturdy shoes and come ready to hit the trail.
