Wissahickon Valley Park is the perfect place for a Philadelphian to escape the hustle and bustle of city living. The best thing about the park is that it is right inside Philadelphia. Often, other than some traffic noise, you wouldn’t even know that you are in one of the largest cities in the country. Wissahickon Valley Park is part of Fairmount Park, spans 1,800 acres, and has 57 miles of hiking, biking, walking, and horseback riding trails—all within the city. This hike takes you through wooded trails and a meadow through the Wissahickon Creek Gorge.
