Hike the Wissahickon Valley!

We will be hiking along the forbidden drive trail. we are going to hike the non-gravel side along the creek. this is not a smooth hike, the trails are hardened dirt with parts of rock and stone. we will hike along the creek then venture up into the valley. this is a great hike for pictures, plenty of trees,wildlife and well see the only wooden covered bridge in the city of Philadelphia. Along the way we will pass the Stone sculpture of the indian also! Dogs are a ok on leash. This is about a 4-5 mile hike and is on the moderate side. Great hike for all ages. there is parking lots on both sides of forbidden drive one is on Valley Green Rd and one on Wises Mill Rd, also there is on one Forbidden Drive its self but at times this can get full.i would google valley Green Inn and look at the best parking for you and what direction you are coming from.


Hey everyone this hike is turning out to be a great one with a signup now at around 50 people! Im excited to see everyone! please remember to give yourself extra time for parking as sometime it can be tricky. We leave at 10:40 am for the hike so PLEASE give yourself all the time you may need to get at the meeting place. Thanks and happy hiking!


*we have many attending now, my last count was fifty so MAKE SURE that you give yourself plenty of time to get there. We are leaving at 10:40am on the dot so if you are not sure how to get there and parking can get tricky please give yourself plenty of time. Should be a great hike and I excited to meet everyone!*

    FYI, when I hit the direction tab. The directions put me on Valley Green Road in Flourtown, not at the Valley Green Inn. You want the Valley Green Inn Philadelphia.
