Beautiful, well maintained trails with a variety of options- flat/gravel, flat natural, inclined- for a variety of styles. Never gets old or boring. Have tried a lot of parks in the area but the Wissahickon is the one I keep coming back to

We had a great time biking the trails. We got caught in the rain but we still enjoyed ourselves.

Great if your looking for something slightly more challenging then a straight path. Did this with a toddler on my back with no issues. Trails are marked great and historic pieces are entertaining to find and look at. Only annoying part was the people lounging around some of the most scenic parts, taking away from the total experience in my opinion. I'd go back only because I live close and I'd like a chance to get close to some things I didn't get to this first time due to crowding. Go early!
