Register for this segment:

You're signing up to walk on Sunday, September 11 at 10:40am, clockwise from Wissahickon Station towards Chestnut Hill East Station* 

Each segment is estimated to take roughly 10-12 miles and 5-6hrs. Your mileage may vary depending on choices made by your group, and there will be options to depart / get picked up along the way if necessary. Using public transportation to access departure and end locations is highly recommended.

Segment note: There’s a longer stretch of this segment (between Ivy Ridge & Miquon) where rideshare pickups aren’t possible. The later part of this segment involves a significant uphill climb.

Once registered, you will receive some additional resources including a packing list, segment maps, and list of optional exit points if you don't think you'll walk the full distance with the group.

*NOTE: We plan for each start time to have groups heading both clockwise & counterclockwise. In the event of insufficient registration, the groups may combine and your direction and end-point may change. Please keep an eye out for emails the night before for any last minute updates / changes.
