Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

The perfect day trip leads just outside the Philadelphia grid to this lush wonderland of greenery. Comprising 1,800 acres and 57 miles of trails, you can explore the wilderness for days at a time and still leave parts untouched. Follow the beginner-level gravel trails along the creek or venture up the surrounding mountains for a more challenging adventure. Stop at the historic Valley Green Inn if you need sustenance along the way and don’t forget to inquire about permits if you plan to picnic, off-road bike or horseback ride (and yes, these are all options!).
