Day Hike 28Nov2020



Come join us on a Troop 98 Day Hike in Philadelphia!  It's a great way to start getting in shape (whether for Philmont or anything else), plus we'll get to know Rittenhouse Town!

Here's the details:

Start:  At 9:30AM at the parking lot on the Northwestern Avenue (down the street from Bruno's restaurant)DIRECTIONS (from Blue Bell). 
If it's impossible to park here there are additional parking lots farther down the trail HERE and HERE. Call a hike leader to inform him and arrange for a meet-up on the trail.

End:  At 3PM at the same parking lot.

You can see the Wissahickon Park Trails Map here:  MAP

We'll plan to hike all the way to Rittenhouse Town [LINK] and then back. This is about 10 miles round trip. Eat a good breakfast and bring water, a bag lunch, and snacks (no food sharing!). You should put this plus the TEN ESSENTIALS in a backpack or sling bag. You don't have to wear your Scout uniform.



  • YOU MUST GET YOUR OWN RIDES TO AND FROM THE HIKE

  • YOU MUST BRING AND WEAR A MASK THE ENTIRE TIME

  • Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately in layers (hat and gloves can be helpful, especially if you have to stop for a while for any reason)

  • If you're thinking of going to Philmont next Summer you should WEAR YOUR HIKING BOOTS AND CARRY YOUR BACKPACK (maybe put around 20 pounds of canned goods in it to be donated?)
