A favorite since childhood. I visited this week and it was very cold and so quiet! Yes, if you’re going to complain about the crowds, dogs, and bikes, perhaps choose another trail. Even within Wissahickon Valley Park, there are plenty of options. Forbidden Drive and Valley Green are historically the most popular.

A very good mix of rock, mud, slopes and flat areas. Also the orange trail takes you near the water which is a plus. Can also bike on a few of the trails here. Overall, would definitely recommend for a morning hike.

The curve off river was very fun to mountain bike but very steep on one the way back to my start points.

Nice way to get out of the city. We saw two deer in close proximity and it was wonderful. We tried to stick to the Gray Fox trail but just ended up walking around until we got lost and then used the AllTrails recording to find our way back.

Is it the best hiking ever? No. But considering it’s proximity to the city it’s awesome. Definitely worth the trip. It’s nice to have something like this so close to the city. Be advised there is a lot of people around so if you’re looking to have the trail mostly to yourself, this isn’t the place.

Kid friendly and easy hike. Crowded with lots of dogs. A little muddy so wear hiking shoes!

Such a great place to get a nice hike or walk in with your dog. It’s a nice 2 mile loop, with some cut-thru trails. A gorgeous meadow, and a connection to forbidden dr. It’s officially one of my new favorite places in Philadelphia. Great spot
