Join us for this new, interesting and varied hiking area for WTC. There is a loop hike around the campus and arboretum; the pace here will be slow, to allow viewing of the flora. We’ll view a cutting edge campus wide geoexchange heating and cooling system and see state champion American Elm and Kentucky Coffee trees. The hike will then enter Crum Woods to see the amphitheater in the woods, and hike along the scenic Crum Creek. There are some steep hills and one easy stream crossing. Bathrooms are available on campus roughly one hour into the hike. There’s an optional lunch on the way home in Media at Dim Sung Mania.

Please bring water, sunscreen and trekking poles if you use them.

NOTE: We are parking near the Tennis Courts and then walking to the meeting area at Scott Arboretum office that is on the left at 500 College Avenue.

Restroom Options: Best options before the hike are the Dunkin’ just north of campus next to
Springfield Mall at 1158 Baltimore Pike, Springfield PA, or the Dunkin’ on South Campus at 1 South Chester Road, Swarthmore. There are limited restroom options during the hike.
