Trail Nature Walks

Join us for guided walks on the trail

Our next guided walk will be at 2:30 pm on Sunday, April 14, as part of the Cynwyd Trail Day informational celebration. If you wish to participate meet at the Barmouth trailhead. If you are there at other times, you can do a self-guided walk that will start from the FOCHT membership table. 

If you would like a guided nature walk for your group, please contact us at

Birding along the Cynwyd Trail at 8am on the first Saturday of each month, starting at the Bala Cynwyd Playground. The trail is a great place to look for birds, with many different habitats. It's especially nice during migration seasons in spring and fall.  You can join us for birdwalks on the first Saturday of every month, and at other times as posted here. 

Birders of all levels are welcome, including children accompanied by an adult.  Bring your binoculars but not your pets. We submit results to Pennsylvania eBird.  You can view our lists, and those of other birders, on the eBird website.

We have archived information put together before and after nature walks on the trail, including photographs.  There are also video walks, made for the 2020 Covid season, that can give you a flavor of nature on the trail from the comfort of your couch.
