Just a drive through is satisfying and a reminder of what Philly was before it became an equally terrific urban landscape. more »
One of the best city parks I have had the opportunity to thoroughly explore. You can hike here all days if you go up on the trails up in the hills and away from the main traffic of the creek. So much wildlife to spot, just a short trip from Philly. Every time i need a refresher i take the drive up here and clear my mind. A true life saver!
What unique message can I share that has not already been stated? The majestic Wissahickon Trail is a nature lover's paradise! I have walked all sections of the main trail and many side trails - it is truly beautiful in all seasons. I walked 5 different dogs here over the years; they all had a blast, and the bigger dogs enjoyed the creek using their retractable leashes. Please remember to treat your dogs with a tic preventative, and check yourself after walks, as tics and tic borne illnesses are prevalent in SEPA.
