  • Philadelphia (19107)
16 miles. Depart from corner of 16th & JFK Blvd. at 8:30 AM. Return to Philadelphia by train at the end of the day. Some hikers usually take the Chestnut Hill West train into the city to start the hike. A classic Batona traditional winter hike. We traverse Fairmount Park and find good hiking on remote trails within the largest in-city park in the world. Terrain is level to rocky. A friend and colleague of the leader lives on Rex Avenue very near the end of the hike. She has invited all of the hikers to stop by her home for refreshments and food when we finish. Ice or heavily accumulating snow cancels. Cost: $0.75 plus train fare. Leader: Bruce Melgary, 215-498-0472, 215-498-0472,
