Cobbs Creek Trail Description

Cobbs Creek Trail runs through the borough of Lansdowne, just west of Philadelphia. The paved pathway offers a scenic route along its tree-lined namesake creek from the 63rd Street Station to Cobbs Creek Parkway and 70th Street.

It connects to the 58th Street Greenway (an important city connector which also provides access to the historical Bartram's Garden) and will link to the developing Cobbs Creek Connector Trail that will head to John Heinz Wildlife Refuge. The trail is also part of a larger effort called the East Coast Greenway, a trail network spanning nearly 3,000 miles and connecting major cities along the Eastern Seaboard.

Parking and Trail Access

You can access the trail using public transportation by getting off at the 63rd Street Station of the SEPTA Market-Frankford Line, which is near the northern terminus of the trail.

On-street parking is available along several of the local streets surrounding the trail.
