Very boring trail to hike in. We were literally hiking in peoples backyards. Also the trail cut through many busy roads. The only good thing about it is that it’s a very easy trail to follow

This was my first 10+ mile trail. I really liked that this trail is located in a semi-urban setting as opposed to deep in the woods. I retained cell service and there were plenty of bail out points along the way (crosses several main roads and winds through backyards). Great trail if you’re looking to build confidence with distance per day.

from the north whales entry to this trail the trail is very narrow through the woods and VERY filled with tree roots. not recommended for biking.

We decided that after completing the 12.6 miles of the green ribbon trail, to continue down Stenton Ave and then hit up Forbidden Drive. 10/10, would hike again.

This is a fun trail, it has river crossing that are ez if you can shoulder a bike. I normally rid it on my gravel bike but it would be better on a plus tire hardtail. All and all it’s fast with plenty exciting bends.

I just walked the entire trail with a good friend today. We started in north wales. I was very surprised at just how much of this trail is in the woods away from the crowds and streets. It is very nice how it stays close to the creek. The water crossings are easy thanks to the stones they have placed in the water to assist you. As long as you have a map of the trail you should be ok because there are a few places where you have to cross a road and pick the trail up a little on down the road. The trail is not very challenging but if you want a long hike through the woods you should take a day and walk the whole trail.

My buddy John and I hiked a 9 mile section of this trail. It was a very hot and humid day, and although the trail is basically flat, we were beat by the time we finished. We parked a car at the golf club lot in Flourtown and staged John's car at the Gwynedd Valley Post office. The hike winds along the Wissahickon Creek and crosses several bridges, including nicely constructed stepping stone bridges. The trail also crosses several roads, making it easier to do a shorter hike if you want to. A local gem. Give it a try.

I love this trail for it's hidden convenience and for the ability to jump on it at several different locations. Mainly in the easy category with a few moderate up and downs along the way. Did the 10 miler that Tony Juliano described below a few weeks back. It originates at Parkside Place Park in Upper Gwynedd Township (go all the way back to parking lot next to or behind pool) and ends near the bridge on Skippack Pike (Route 73) at Ft Wash State Park. I tend to move along while hiking so it only took me 2-1/2 hrs (with no stops) to complete. Have at it.

Nice, easy creek side trail. Minimal hills. Mostly paved trails, with a few short dirt trails in between. A few scenic spots. I started an out-and-back route from the Fort Washington State Park parking lot by the Hawk Observation Deck. Then, I took the shortest route to the Green Ribbon Preservation Trail and headed southwards. A few hundred feet down the trail, there's a train underpass where you walk along side a steadily flowing Wisshickon Creek, which provides some nice scenery. About a mile southwards, the trail splits. If you head left, you'll come to a long, well constructed pedestrian bridge that spans the Wissahickon Creek. It's worthwhile to walk across. Then, I retraced my steps to where the trail split and continued southwards on the Green Ribbon Preservation Trail until I reached Stenton Ave (where the trail ends). I turned around and headed back to Fort Washington State Park on the same route, stopping on the Hawk Observation Deck on my way back, which provided a cool scenic overlook of the surrounding landscape above the treeline. A nice, leisurely walk. Pretty much the only worthwhile trail around Fort Washington State Park.

Great trail in the "burbs" outside of Philly. The north section is 10 miles, running from North Wales south to Fort Washington State Park - can be extended another 3 miles using the Wissahickon Trail in the park itself. The weather was wonderful, sunny with temps in the 60's, there were only a few muddy spots en-route. A really nice early spring workout.

I love this trail. We usually start in Fort Washington State Park and walk all the way to where the trail dead ends at Mathers Road. Around, I think it is about 10-12 miles, but we usually start a little away from the trail so we also hike to the trail through Washington State Park. It can get muddy if it has been rainy but I love that you have to cross the creek a few times and the trail constantly changes. It's almost like a puzzle the first time you walk.

We hiked the area by the wissahickon watershed association headquarters . We took the trail to Germantown Academy and back. Very serene and peaceful by the creek!! The trail is flat with some small bridges. The only obstacles were a stream crossing with narrow stone steps and an area where you needed to climb a ladder. Although the crossing/ladder was fun, older people might be turned off. A nice little trail to get close to nature without having to take a long drive!
