Tromping Along the Towpath

A snowshoeing or hiking adventure

Join us for our first activity in 2015!

January 10th is Pennsylvania Winter GO (Get Outdoors!) Day, and we'll be doing just that with a trek along the towpath in boots, snowshoes, or cross country skis, depending on the weather.

Delaware Canal State Park Educator Ian Kindle and Susan Taylor will lead the way for an up to 3 mile, scenic round trip between Tinicum Park and historic Uhlerstown. If there is snow on the ground, bring your own cross country skis or snowshoes or borrow a pair of snow shoes from the Park. (10 pairs of adult snowshoes and 2 pairs of children's snowshoes are available.) Wearing waterproof boots for snowshoes is suggested. Please dress in layers for the weather.

Hot chocolate and cookies will be waiting at the end of the trek.

The Tromp will be cancelled in the event of rain or dangerous driving. Please check the homepage of www.fodc.org for a GO/NO GO message that will be posted by 9 a.m. on the 10th.

See you on the towpath in the new year!
