Lincoln Drive Trail Description

The Lincoln Drive Trail bridges the gap between two of Philadelphia’s very popular trails. At its southern endpoint, the mouth of the Wissahickon Creek at Ridge Avenue, the trail meets the Schuylkill River Trail. The Lincoln Trail also provides access into the scenic Wissahickon Valley Park for cyclists from nearby areas like the Manayunk neighborhood and Center City. At the northern trailhead of the Lincoln Drive Trail, cyclists and other trail users can join the Wissahickon Valley Park Trail along Forbidden Drive.

 

Parking and Trail Access

There is limited parking available at the northern trailhead of the Lincoln Drive Trail, where it meets Forbidden Drive. 
 
Also, the SEPTA Wissahickon Transportation Center, located at 4900 Ridge Avenue at Lincoln Drive, provides numerous bus connections.

 




Lincoln Drive Trail Reviews

This trail handily connects the Schuylkill River trail to the Wissahickon Valley Trail. This allows you to park along the river on Kelly Drive and make your way over to Wissahickon if that is your goal.
