CONFLUENCE HIKE Sunday, March 24th 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 takes place 3 days after the spring equinox and 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. This hike is snow or shine!

$15 for non-members
Free for members of Fairmount Park Conservancy (membership starts at $35/year and includes year-round events).
