  • 16th and JFK Blvd, Philadelphia

16-17 miles. Depart from outside the Suburban Station building at the corner of 16th & JFK Blvd. at 8:30 AM. We finish at Germantown and Rex in Chestnut Hill between 4:30 and 5:00 pm. Hikers may take the Chestnut Hill West train into the city to start the hike or to return to Center City at the end of the hike. This is a classic, traditional Batona winter hike. We traverse Fairmount Park and walk on remote trails within the largest city park in the world. Terrain is level to hilly and rocky. For those who are interested there will be a stop at a local Chestnut Hill brew pub following the hike. Ice or heavily accumulating snow cancels. Bring lunch and water. Hiking boots recommended. Cost: $1.00 plus train fare. Leader: Bruce Melgary, 215-498-0472, bmelgary@gmail.com
