 HIKING
Tucked away in a hilly section of Delco, bordered by some of the well-traveled roads in the county, is Hildacy Farm Preserve, a 55- acre gem of native woodlands, wetlands, meadows, and streams. Named for Hilda and Cyril Fox, who donated the property to the Natural Lands Trust, Hildacy
has 3.5 miles of unpaved hiking trails — ranging from easy to moderate — that are just waiting to be explored. If you happen to consider yourself a budding or experi- enced ornithologist (bird watcher), be sure to pick up the preserve’s list of 125 species, broken down into seasonal occurrence, that have been spotted on the grounds.
