The Wissahickon is by far the best place to mountain bike in the greater philadelphia area. The mountain bike trails on the West side of the river (the same side as Valley Green Inn) are not as technical as the trails on the East side of the river. The ones on the east side, especially by the Indian Statue are extremely rocky and hilly. The ones on the East side are still very challenging but not as many rocks. For my favorite trail, start at Valley Green Inn on the main bridle trail and go south about 3/4 of mile. After you go down a short hill there will be a trail on the right hand side (the river is on the left). Go down that trail about 1/3 of a mile and the trail forks. Go over the small bridge and take the trail up the hill to the left. Stay on the trail and it will eventually drop you off on Lincoln Drive.
