HikingGreat!

Great trail following a creek to the Wissahickon. The red covered bridge is beautiful. The water was raging today because of the tropical storm that came through with lots of flooding. Like others have said we skipped the yellow trail across the bridge and just walked on Forbidden Drive to make it easier for the kids. This knocked off some elevation and mileage to make it more manageable.

This was a beautiful hike! 3.0 miles though was a little tough on my 15yo golden. If you are going with young kids or old dogs I would skip the yellow trail and make the loop back on forbidden drive. Really everything you could ask for in a city hike: water, waterfalls (small), covered bridge, great forest, some elevation which adds a little challenge. I had a great time - bring bug spray.

The trail itself was great. But the AllTrails app botched this so bad. I had to backtrack because there was no trail where there should have been one. Total hike was maybe 5.5 miles that I did today and 2 of them on forbidden drive because the map was wrong. Only time this has happened to me on this app but be prepared to take trails that are not part of the loop. All the trails in this area are gorgeous though.

Beautiful trail! Not difficult or too time consuming- took us 3 hours including a short snack break. Wear sunblock, some parts of the trail are without tree cover.

Pretty decent trail. Low foot traffic. Moderate bike traffic (would really recommend staying to the side of the trail as the bikes just zoom past you). Not much going on scenery wise.

What a great maze of trails from moderate to easy!! Some wide, some narrow with lots of streams and water features. Unfortunately, the trail markers are terrible, and AllTrails got totally confused and did the worse I’ve ever experienced with assisting me along the trails. The poor cell service confused the GPS and I had to back track 4 miles to get back to where I started. Recommend for all levels!

What’s the vibe with mask wearing on the trials? Does this lead to the actual park at all?

Was a great run until I tripped over tree root and ate it. Beautiful spot though, just watch where you’re going.

We hiked 7/4/2020. I assumed a less than 5 mile hike and based on my typical hiking app, this logged as 7.23 miles. I use this other app all the time so I don’t see it being off so many miles. 1) lavender trail was marked. Orange and white was tough to find. Using this app to look back to was very helpful. 2) we followed the “red” on the app as listed for this. After you get off the white, you go back to lavender. 3) we saw more than 10 dogs SANS a leash. One set was an older couple and >4 unleashed dogs. Sorry but no. I don’t care he won’t hurt me. 6’ leash. Later there were two dogs sans leashes. One running through the woods. WTF. There are kids here. People allergic to dogs. This is not the correct location for unleashed dogs. 4) not a lot of good spots to pee. 5) mask or not - no one judged. We just all moved off trail and stood with our back to the trail. 6) limited picnic tables but we saw some! 7) very very rocky. To the point that the “bike” signs should be take down. Very few spots would be good for that. We are excited to go back and possibly join FOW! Beautiful but exhausting day!

This trail isn’t for mountain biking. Unless you enjoy riding over rocks and stumps I wouldn’t recommend riding it.

Great morning to get out and hike. Trail was dry and in good shape. Cleared and occupied by many. By 10 the parking lots were packed.

This trail needs to be marked better, i went off trail multiple times. also there was a lot of people out on the trail and in the creek. it is by far the most challenging trail i've been on so far. not the highest , but alot of Rocky hills. and i mean ALOT !!! i'll give this trail a 4 only because it's not marked better.
