Enjoy an easy/moderate hike, along the Houston Meadow Trail, which ends at Houston Rec Center, which has an awesome playground and sprayground. 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, 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: 10AM and 11:30AM (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: Trail head start: 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/or small yard signs that say “Prescribe Outside” and/or “Let’s Go Outdoors.”)
