It seems everyone in Manayunk knows the tow path along the river. Few have found this trail from downtown Manayunk to the Baga Cynwyd SEPTA station, and it's got it all: views over Manayunk, the canal, river, and freeway, a pleasant stream, interpretive signage, access to the historic cemetery, and even a cafe at the end of the trail! With virtually no elevation change and both paved and unpaved paths, it's accessible for everyone from walkers to runners, tricycles to road bikes. Accessibility: The paved trail surface is most accessible for wheelchairs and strollers and is typically at least eight feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated under 5% except for a steep 12% section at 0.2 miles).Show more
