There are a number of highlights on this moderate hike that just about anybody could do. After you hike through the activity and picnic area of the park, you cross Pennypack Creek on an interesting footbridge to the wooded area where you can get up close to Council Rock, a 100-foot-high gneiss outcrop where chiefs of the local Lenni Lenape Indians met on the topside to celebrate or to seek or give counsel. You then hike uphill to get on top of the boulder to check out the view. From here, the hike leads you back across the footbridge and alongside Pennypack Creek to connect for a short time with the Pennypack Trail before you cut away and reenter the forest before you return to the paved park roads and the parking lot where you started.
