Tour of the Boxer Trail and Colonial Chain of Mansions

Information and reservations: Philadelphia Parks Alliance, 215-879-8159. Meet at  the Starbucks at Broad and Pine Streets at 4:50pm, from where we’ll take the 5:02pm Rt. 32 bus to our starting point at the historic and recently restored historic trolley terminal at 33rd St and Ridge Avenue —Terrain and Difficulty:  Moderate difficulty owing to some occasionally steep and soft trail surfaces. Wear good walking shoes, and bring snacks to eat along the way. Fee includes the narrated walk, but not the cost of the optional dinner.

We'll enjoy the natural and historic beauties of the so-called Boxer’s Trail perched on the bluffs above the Schuylkill River, linking the so-called “Colonial Chain of Historic Mansions” including Strawberry, Laurel Hill, Ormiston, Rockland and Mt. Pleasant. Time permitting, we will visit the almost forgotten ruins of the 18th century Cliffs Mansion.  An optional dinner with a toast to the people who saved this magnificent colonial landscape follows at a café on the Ben Franklin Parkway.
