The Schuylkill Wissahickon Loop takes us through Manayunk, Roxborough, possibly Laurel Hill West Cemetery and the Historic Cynwyd Trail, and the Wissahickon: quite varied terrain. We usually head up and down the Manayunk hills via alleyways and small streets. Great views at the top. We'll then head up over Ridge Ave to the Wissahickon to hike on parts we rarely travel.
A note about Laurel Hill West Cemetery. Many famous folks including Teddy Pendergast, Grover Washington Junior, Billy Paul, Pew of the Pew Trusts/Sunoco Oil, and the father of baseball, Harry Wright amongst others rest here.
Caution:You should be able to walk 3-4 hours without much of a break. You should have recently hiked 8 miles in conditions detailed above. Some steep hills.
