Wissahickon Creek and Forbidden Drive Trail

It was by chance that I stumbled on this place,  well sort of. We had visited the nearby and quaint Rittenhousetown about two and a half before with our child in tow. I remember seeing the trailhead and saying to myself "I'll be back someday to ride or walk that thing". And as it turned out, I did and so should everyone in the Philly area. It is wonderland in the woods and an amateur hiker's practice spot. And if you are hungry, the posh yet affordable Valley Green Inn is nestled about halfway down the trail. On the weekends, they sell ice cream, soda, and snacks out the back for the weary traveller. Take a ride up Lincoln Drive and enjoy.
