Enjoy an easy/moderate hike, along the Houston Meadow Trail, which ends with warm cider at Houston Rec Center featuring an awesome playground.
To Be Clear: The hike start is NOT where the hike ends, though we will only be about a 10-minute sidewalk/paved walk from where the hike ends.
This is an easy/slightly moderate hike along varied dirt, rock, grassy, and gravel terrain. There are some slopes and inclines. It is NOT stroller-friendly and takes at least 30-50 minutes to complete. There are NO bathroom facilities, so plan accordingly. This is NOT a stroller-accessible trail and does involve walking up/down hills and traveling on varied terrain – soil, mulch, grass, pavement, etc.
START TIME(S): The hike will start promptly at the following times: 11AM (We will NOT wait for late-comers. If you arrive early and don’t see our Educator, please wait near the yard signs.)
MEETING LOCATION: Trailhead starts: 991 East Cathedral Rd., Philadelphia, PA 19128 (This is NOT a building, but rather a tree-lined area along a street. You should see a Let’s Go Outdoors Educator and small yard signs that say “Prescribe Outside” or “Let’s Go Outdoors.”)
Closed-toed shoes can get dirty, as the trail may be muddy or shoes may get soiled.
Appropriate attire for the weather – layers are strongly recommended in cooler seasons.
An adult, aged 18 years or older, MUST remain and participate in the program with their child(ren).
