When you think of Philadelphia, vibrant woodlands aren’t the first thing that comes to mind — but Philly is actually teeming with natural acres of forest that many locals fail to take advantage of. The Fairmount Park Conservancy hopes to change that with their Go Take a Hike! program, designed to help Philly residents discover the natural wonders hidden right in our backyard.

The Fairmount Park Conservancy’s guided hiking series, which has four dates on the roster this spring, will take you through woodsy areas like the Wissahickon (One of the hikes is dedicated to the “Wissahickon’s Greatest Hits”), Boxers’ Trail, and West Fairmount Park. Some of the hikes will be led by Hidden City’s Brad Maule and the others will be led by the Fairmount Park Conservancy’s Luke Rhodes. Yoga instructor Nicole Taylor will join Rhodes on a few of the trips to lead a guided meditation. Talk about a relaxing way to spend your Sunday, right?

There are four upcoming dates to take advantage of. Guided hikes with Maule are April 16th and May 15th. Guided hikes plus meditation with Rhodes and Taylor are April 24th and June 12th. The guided hikes are $10 for non-Fairmount Park Conservancy members and free for members. You can find more info and register here.
