The Wissahickon is the Wanderers' favorite place to train, socialize, race, volunteer and relax. Please use the information and links below to learn more about the Wissahickon, Valley Green Inn, Maps, upcoming trail events, and to learn about ways to volunteer in the park.
Please Join Wanderers Every 4th Saturday to Help Restore the Park!
Wanderers are urged to participate in trail maintenance volunteering efforts every 4th Saturday of the month. The exact location, driving directions, and timing will be posted on the Wanderers site (see link above) a few days prior.
Please consider joining fellow Wanderers to work with these groups on their monthly work days. These trail maintencance days are designed for people of all abilities and interests and are designed to be a fun and learning experience for all. Some people like to haul rocks and dirt but equally important, we also need people to help pick up trash, transplant trees, rake, remove invasive species, etc. Dozens of people typically show up and it is a fun experience all around.

Wanderers know the Wissahickon as the best place for training and running. However, it has often been the subject of famous authors and artists and the area was bustling with industry at one time. The history available on Wikipedia dates back to 1694.
