Be a trailblazer this fall and see all of the Wissahickon Valley Park’s beauty and history as part ofFriends of the Wissahickon’s (FOW) All Trails Challenge (ATC). FOW is inviting people of all ages and fitness levels to hike, bike, walk, run, even horseback ride the park’s 50 miles of scenic trails betweenSept. 7 and Nov. 28. While you’re experiencing the full impact of this urban oasis, you’ll be supporting the work of FOW to keep the park so special.

Along the way, there’ll be mileage and fundraising incentives, lots of give-aways, and scheduled hikes and walks with great prizes, including exclusive vacations for the top mileage and fundraising participants. Last year, more than 270 people participated in FOW’s inaugural ATC, altogether completing over 5,000 miles, and raising $25,000 for the park.
