Philly Fairmount Park Hidden Trails

  • This location is shown only to members

Join us to explore some hidden trails in Philly's Fairmount Park.  The 15 mile route will take us off the bike trails along Kelly and West River Drives and into the woods.  These lesser known dirt trails and paved paths will take us past the Philadelphia Art Museum, Rocky Steps, Water Works, Boathouse Row, Lemon Hill, Japanese House, Laurel Hill Cemetery, Please touch Museum, and the beautiful Master Street and Chamounix tunnels from an old Trolley Line.

Although this part of the park is surrounded by the city, there will be few food stops. Please bring lunch and plenty of water.  The route will be about 15 miles and should take all day since there is so much to check out.  Because it is big loop with the river in between there will be few bailout points.

Meet 8:30am at the Horse stables near the Chamounix Mansion youth hostel. 3250 Chamounix Drive, Philadelphia, PA[masked]

    I'm offering to drive anyone that needs a ride if they'll meet me around Woodbridge or along the turnpike heading to Philly.

    It's going to windy. 20-30 mph wind according to the weather wizards.

    I am coming from Pineville in Bucks County. Can I grab a ride with anyone? I car share with my son and Sunday is not "my day." Thanks!
