Wissahickon South Professional Review and Guide
"The scenic Wissahickon Gorge, part of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park system, is a natural open oasis surrounded by an ever-swelling urban sprawl. First inhabited by Lenni-Lenape Indians, then Quakers and German immigrants, the park has a history as colorful as Philadelphia itself. It's hard to travel more than a mile in the park without seeing remnants of Philadelphia and America's past.
After your ride, take the time to enjoy the sights and sounds of this wonderful natural area. Trout fishing, bird watching, flora and fauna identification, and hiking are some of the activities you can pursue before or after your ride. Terrain: Singletrack, doubletrack, dirt and paved roads. The hills are short and steep with lots of rocks and roots for the expert rider to test his or her skills."
