"This ride is another great outing within the city limits of Philadelphia. Popular with hikers, joggers, fisherman, equestrians, and cyclists, Pennypack Park is another jewel in the Fairmount Park Commission crown. The Pennypack Wilderness consists of approximately 1,600 acres of woods, meadows, and wetlands, all of which are being restored and maintained by the Pennypack Watershed Association.
The Pennypack Creek watershed contains over 55 square miles of forests, meadows, and wetlands. winding its way past some of the more populated areas in Philadelphia, Pennypack Creek runs the length of the park and eventually drains into the Delaware River. Adjacent to the park and well worth a visit are the Pennypack Environmental Center on Verree Road and Fox Chase Farm on Pine Road. Terrain: Tight singletrack, doubletrack, gravel roads, and dirt roads. There are a number of short hills along the beautiful Pennypack Creek."
