Varied Terrains of the Wissahickon Valley with Scott Quitel

Saturday, January 10, 9 a.m. to noon

Meet at Forbidden Drive and Bells Mill Road

Starting from our meeting spot, at the base of the valley, we’ll head up the forested gorge to the open natural area known as Houston Meadow. Discover where a suspension bridge from Roxborough across the gorge to Chestnut Hill was planned but never built. Head down along Cathedral Run, across the Wissahickon, up the other side of the gorge, and to a schist barren, upon which Tedyuscung peers across the gorge. On the way back, pass a bubbling cascade that looks like a mountain stream. Scott Quitel
