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

Very nice, challenging hike with good elevation changes. Not too much scenery, but you pass the large statue and walk along the river for a good portion of the trail. Some parts are a little difficult, so it’s probably best to avoid this trail if you are a beginner

Really liked this trail. First part was on the edge of the river with many nice viewpoints. Crosses over to forbidden drive.

Not sure why it says 4 mile loop on the app, but it’s actually only 2 miles. Beautiful, even in the winter. This is a horse trail so there may be some poop you’ll have to avoid. Nice plants, birds and wildlife.

Great trail to be on, plenty of different paths to take, not too challenging but not easy. Good spot in Philly for a nice morning hike.

This trail is pretty straight forward --- nice to be lost in the woods, very easy trail to follow. You will find all kinds of people on this trail from hikers, mountain bikers, trail runners, horse ridders, dogs etc... Some parts of the trail is wider and some parts of the trail is narrow. Good trail more on endurance side, easy, nothing too challenging, going over rocks, small wood bridges, and part of trail takes you to the flat part of creek on Forbidden Road. After completing the trail, went and had late lunch at Valley Green Inn. Very nice place for post-hike.

This trail was well marked and pretty straight forward. I also had the alltrails maps up to keep us on track! There were some challenging parts with incline, especially in the beginning but definitely doable. Be careful for bikers - the trail gets a bit narrow at spots. The bikers don't really slow down but they were all really nice when they passed by and gave us a heads up if there were more of them. Definitely nice to go in the fall with no bugs - and no overgrown plants. In addition, the scenery was really nice!

actually 2.1 miles dead on. meadow walk in the sun. easy walking. windy one side and then not on the other

Great trails that are well marked. I would consider yellow to be easy and orange intermediate but I passed many small children on each so it is definitely doable for beginners though they may take longer. Well trafficked on weekends with families and dogs. Also a bike trail. For these reasons I prefer weekdays.

This trail was great! The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because it was very poorly marked - make sure you have a backup.
