Autumn Hike: Ridley Creek State Park
Join other alumni and friends for a fall hike through Ridley Creek State Park in Media, PA. We will enjoy some socially distant physical activity of moderate difficulty.
This gathering (children welcome!) will include a guide at the front and rear to accommodate different rates of enjoyment. Bottled water and granola/energy bars will be provided. The event is free for alumni, families and friends., but please RSVP by Nov. 18th.
We will hike only in good weather. Please check email that morning for cancelation notice if weather looks uncertain.
We will hike the loop shown below which comprises largely of the White trail with some Yellow trail in between. The trail is 4.1 miles long and will take around 2h30m to complete with a break for snacks. There are several road crossings on the trail which should be done with caution as cars cannot see pedestrians until they come closer. Leaves cover the roots and boulders on the trail so hiking boots with good traction are recommended. There is a restroom facility at the 1 hour point.
Please download the activity waiver by clicking here and bring a signed copy to the event.
All adults need to sign/date the waiver and list minors in their party.
