Want a ride where you can take the family? Want a ride where you can get a workout and spend time in a beautiful area full of migratory birds and rich plant life? Well, here's the ride for you. Located near the Philadelphia and Delaware county borders, the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum spreads out over 1,200 acres, safeguarding Pennsylvania's largest remaining freshwater tidal wetland. The main activities at the refuge are hiking, walking, jogging, fishing, cycling, bird watching, and canoeing.
While the area may feel remote, it's actually close to both the Philadelphia International Airport and Interstate 95. At certain times of the day while you are riding along the trails, the music from the songbirds will replace the noise from the encircling areas. Take the time on your ride to stop and enjoy the serenity of this peaceful and diverse eco-system. Terrain: The ride follows a wide, flat dirt and gravel road around the main impoundment area.
