  • I had not been to the Wissahickon in over thirty years but it is a place well worth revisiting. There are trails on either side of the stream, the one on the east side is a footpath-not wide and requi...  more »

  • Great scenic hiking in an historic area of the Delaware Valley. With several branching trails to choose from, you'll never take the same path twice. Go very early in the day to avoid most of the crowds if you enjoy solitude.
  • Such a beautiful escape from "the city" even though it's within city limits. Great trails, bridges, gorgeous trees, creek views... It's my favorite local place to go for a nature walk or "hike".
  • OMG it's a beautiful park. In the summer a nice Breeze by the water. nice outting for the kids to become 1 with nature especially for my son who has ADHD. Spring time when the flowers bloom. Winter time snow is beautiful. Fall when the leaves change colors. Lovely
  • Straight away, parking is weird. The lot is almost always full with some people even parallel parking behind parked cars and in the street. If you can maneuver past that, you're all set. It's gorgeous here! The trails are clean and wide and a really great place to go for a peaceful walk. You can climb (carefully) along a waterfall, enjoy awesome perspectives above, on or below bridges and despite the parking lot being crowded, you almost never run into any other people. It's great year round.
  • Gorgeous park, great escape from the city. Clearly marked trails. Beautiful views and scenery. Water was clear, fall foliage was breathtaking.
