Wissahickon Valley Park reviews
You are in the heart of Philadelphia - a major American city. But once you descend into this trail network, you will feel totally outside the city. A paved trail is perfect for walkers and cyclists..... more »
I live out of state and this is my third time visiting the park. Is a beautiful park in the city with so many trails to choose from. Definitely should give it a visit if you are in Philly. more »
One of the best city parks I have had the opportunity to thoroughly explore. You can hike here all days if you go up on the trails up in the hills and away from the main traffic of the creek. So much wildlife to spot, just a short trip from Philly. Every time i need a refresher i take the drive up here and clear my mind. A true life saver!
What unique message can I share that has not already been stated? The majestic Wissahickon Trail is a nature lover's paradise! I have walked all sections of the main trail and many side trails - it is truly beautiful in all seasons. I walked 5 different dogs here over the years; they all had a blast, and the bigger dogs enjoyed the creek using their retractable leashes. Please remember to treat your dogs with a tic preventative, and check yourself after walks, as tics and tic borne illnesses are prevalent in SEPA.
