Wissahickon Valley Park (Forbidden Drive)

A Little Help Goes a Long Way

August, 2017 by pfinch2113


I was struggling in removing my daypack, when up comes a helpful gentleman who calls himself a Trail Ambassador--"James Charnock" is what his tag says.  As soon as I effusively thank him, up walks a lady who wants to know exactly where she is on the Forbidden Drive and how to get where she wants to be.  TA James takes out a map and answers both her questions, and, of course, advertises the Friends of the Wissahickon.  We talk about the Park and FOW, then we part.  Being professional, he doesn't flirt (I sorta sensed an interest)--though I wouldn't have minded.  I, nevertheless, DID flirt....with the idea of....becoming a Trail Ambassador myself.  What a great "job"!


Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail

Historic canal, good workout trail, nice breeze off the water

August, 2017 by khrysinwythe

Didn't realize that the C&D and the Castle trail combined to make the 17 mile trail. The sign near Schaefer's Canal House restaurant gave me the impression that all of it was the C&D. Even the map on the trail link site says the C&D is the 12 mile from Delaware City to Cheapeake City. This was my 152 ride (trail) in 47 states.
Wife and I had some great crab bisque and Maryland chowder at Kath's Crab House at the end of the trail in Delaware City.

Michael Castle Trail

Great trail - prepare for switchbacks

August, 2017 by bweids5

We parked in Chesapeake City (under bridge past Schaefer's Canal House) and rode to the trail head. We rode about 6.5 mile East turning around at the Summit North Marina. The entire ride was on a paved surface and very smooth. There was a section that was gravel and flat that hugged the canal, but we stayed on the paved surface. There are a couple of switchbacks on the trail going up or down hill (depending on direction). May need or want to walk part of them and these climbs are the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars). Along our route, there are two good restaurants to get some food or a drink of your choice. Schaefer's and Grain at the Summit North Marina. There was some shaded path along with some in the sun. All in all, an enjoyable ride and we are working our way up to the full trail (Chesapeake City to Delaware City).

Wissahickon Valley Park (Forbidden Drive)

It's hard to believe you're still within city limits

August, 2017 by zachpreston

This is the great escape that is only minutes from anywhere in NW Philly. The trail system is kept in good shape and it's buzzing with activity with everyone from young to old, serious athlete to just getting some fresh air.

Downs Park Trail

Poor biking trail, great for walkers and joggers

August, 2017 by grillingitup

I'm rating this for biking. If you're under the age of 70, and if you ride faster than 5 miles per hour, this trail is not for you. I ride a street (racing) bike, and this trail was a very bad experience for me. The "trail" is extremely bumpy throughout because of tree roots. It winds through the woods, which makes for beautiful scenery, but because of the twisty nature, it also has poor visibility. I turned a curve and almost ran into a woman and her child because they were stopped and completely blocking the trail. There are sections where you can see more than 20 feet, but overall, I would not ride this again. It was rough on my bike and on my rear.

John Heinz Refuge Trail

Walk or Bike

August, 2017 by memeticeffects

I took my bike (with mountain bike tires on it) and rode the loop. The path is wide and pretty smooth so you don't really need the mountain bike tires. Beautiful day, beautiful place, not overrun with too many people to make it difficult to ride without constantly stopping (wide paths help). The earlier you go, the more birds and wildlife you'll see. It's about a 45 minute ride up I-95 and worth it. Fish, boat, walk or ride, you'll enjoy your time here.

Chester Valley Trail

Tree lined trail - shady and flat!

August, 2017 by adriannebelcher

Went for a bike ride on this trail with my boys and it was fantastic! Not too difficult and the trail is shady so for an August day it wasn't too hot. Lots of benches to stop and take a break. There are several street crossings but they have pedestrian blinking lights and the crossings are well marked so I felt safe crossing with my boys. Drivers always slowed down for us to cross. Overall a great trail! Definitely recommend for a family bike ride.

East Branch Brandywine Trail

Great Trail!

August, 2017 by adriannebelcher

Took my boys on this trial for a bike ride. The paved part is nice and they had an awesome time on the alternate trail along the river. I definitely recommend going on the alternate trail. Road noise was quieter too.

Michael Castle Trail

July 2017

July, 2017 by scholastica

While pavement is certainly nice, the views are "okay" from the South Lums Pond entrance to DE City. You've got unchanging canal on one side, and nothing to look at on the other, just a berm of brush - with some exceptions. There is no shade at all, so be forewarned. Did enjoy seeing the various boats, altho was disappointed no ships went thru while I rode. At the Delaware City end, you do encounter nice scenery, with tidal marsh (if that's what you call it), an African-American cemetery, and a park. It was a pleasant jaunt.

Cynwyd Heritage Trail

A Time Lapse In History

July, 2017 by rcpat

This trail is not very long but packed with an abundance of scenery and history.The trail used to be the Pennsylvania RR.It mainly carried freight.Later, it was commuter train. Today, the trail is straddle by West Laurel Hill Cemetery and Westminister Cemetery. When biking the trail it is worthwhile to ride in both cemeteries, Especially, in the spring, when flowering trees and greenery is in bloom. Plus, you have a great view of Manayunk. Also, there is quite a few grand mausoleums that are eye catchers. As you come out of the enclosed part of the trail (north end), you will see a great panoramic view of Manayunk. It evens gets better, when you are on top of the "Pennsey Bridge".Manayunk is like a snapshot in history. Finally, when you cross the bridge (north end) the trail ends. St. David's Church is there. Hang a hard left, ride parallel with the old Pennsey RR on your left. Ride down to the intersection and make a left, go under the two rail road bridges make another left and now you will be on the Main Street.Now, you have a choice, you can cross the street and bike the Manayunk Towpath or stay straight on Main ST. Explore the old neighborhoods,check out the old buildings and stop at some of the bars and restaurants. If you want some more history, hop onto the towpath and than the Schuylkill River Trail proceed to center city. The scenery along the way is magnificent.
Enclosing, though the trail is not long, it presents so many options for the users. Experience the scenery and history is a must.

Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail

Nice Paved Trail on the canal

July, 2017 by lycaeides

This is a well maintained trail along the canal from Chesapeake City and connects to the Michael Castle trail which goes to Delaware City . Nice views.
The trail is flat along the canal, but there are hills when it leads you inland through the woods (which is nice and shady) and back down to the canal. There is always a prevailing wind which makes more of a workout in one direction. Seafood restaurants on each end of these two trails. Great trail!

Michael Castle Trail

Great trail! Nice ride along the water's edge

July, 2017 by lycaeides

This is a well maintained trail along the canal from Delaware City and connects to the Ben Cardin trail which goes to Chesapeake City. Nice views.
The trail is flat along the canal, but there are hills when it leads you inland through the marina then a jaunt through the woods (which is nice and shady) and back down to the canal. There is a newly opened section that is paved. This section avoids going through the non paved wet area. The first time we went we could not figure out how to get through the marina, but asked locals and they were happy to point out the way (minimal trail signage). There is always a prevailing wind which makes more of a workout in one direction. Great trail!
