For relatively easy hiking near Philadelphia, try Forbidden Drive, which follows the course of the Wissahickon Creek. It’s a gravel path, so it’s not too hard on the feet. If you’re looking for something a bit more challenging, try the Orange, White or Yellow Trail. And keep an eye on the calendar for guided hikes. Forbidden Drive connects to the Schuylkill River Trail via the Lincoln Drive Trail, so it’s possible to walk or bike the whole way there. Or you can access the park from Valley Green Inn, or a handful of other trailheads.
