This moderate hike begins in the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood in East Fairmount Park in the city of Philadelphia. Here, you walk on sidewalks that lead past baseball fields and picnic areas as you begin a slight uphill climb to the woodsy section, where you get off the sidewalk and pick up the dirt trail that leads you uphill into the forest. Along this section you see colorful signs that announce you will soon get a chance to explore a number of eighteenth-century mansions in what was once an affluent section of the city known as the Schuylkill Highlands. But before the mansions, you get to an overlook where you can see the colorful boats plying the waters of the Schuylkill River.
