Overview

Please join us for a History and Culture Hike. This will be a joint activity initiated by Delaware Valley Chapter's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. The event will feature a guided tour of the Underground Railroad Center at Historic Zercher's Hotel in Christiana, PA after a social hike on the famous Enola Low Grade Trail. The Enola Low Grade Trail is a product of the rails-to-trails program and passes many notable historic places. Meet at 9:30 AM at Zercher's Hotel at 11 Green Street, Christiana, PA. (Look for a gravel lot in the back.) We will hike after a short car shuttle to the trailhead. There will be an optional late lunch or snack after the trip. Bring water and a snack or lunch to eat while on the trail. The museum is free but please bring some cash for an appropriate donation. Wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers. This is a partial scouting trip and there is no bathroom facility at the trailhead. Please leave pets (including service animals) at home. Substantial rain (or snow) will cancel the trip. If in doubt, please check the website. Group size will be limited. To register or if you have a question, please contact the leader.
