Hidden Geology Tour

May 10 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Meet at the southeast corner of 5th and Chestnut St.

In our pursuit of all things hidden, we bring you this leisurely bicycle-based field trip exploring Philadelphia’s 500 million years of geologic history, which is all around us yet rarely seen.

We’ll start in Old City near Independence Hall, ride to the beautiful and scenic banks of the Schuylkill River, and then on to historic RittenhouseTown on Wissahickon Creek. We’ll stop at a number of locations along the way that illustrate the complex geology of this area as well as the surface water drainage and cultural features that shaped over 300 years of development.
