  • 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

  • Always a nice trail to go for a walk hike bike ride or run. Very peaceful once you are far enough into the trail. So many paths to choose from and very peaceful. I love the sound of the water as I walk. Other people are usually on the trail. Sometimes it gets muddy after rain but that makes it all the more fun. Even though you are still in Philly you can't hear or feel the city hustle and bustle once on the trails.
  • This place is the best. It's a great place to run, walk, jog, bike, swim and some people even go fishing. They have a lot of hiking trails and if you're lucky you'll get to see some animals. Everyone brings their dogs but sometimes you'll see horses. We were more than surprised last weekend when we saw 2 people walking their donkeys. It was so awesome. The people are super friendly.
