Come out this Saturday to see what all the hoopla is about. We will be continuing work on extending the trail toward Germantown Avenue and the trestle, along with routine maintenance. We will meet at 10 AM on Cresheim Valley Drive near the Chestnut Hill West overpass. Park across the Drive in the small parking lot, or follow the trail in from Allens Lane. As always coffee, water and snacks will be provided along with tools and gloves. We suggest long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and  sturdy shoes.
