A Charming Walk For Seniors

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

| FREE

This walk is just for the seniors who think they can’t walk the Wissahickon Woods. We will follow the paths from VGI to Rex Ave at a pace that assures that everyone can be comfortable. On the way, we will learn some about the Wissahickon Valley, and make sure we stop to smell the roses. Be sure to wear sturdy footwear (there’s always rocks), and have a windbreaker and water. If you use a walking stick, this is a good hike for bringing it. It offers support and stability.

Level: Moderate

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. For more information contact Sarah Marley at marley@fow.org. Visit www.fow.org for updates.
