John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge Professional Review and Guide

"Every day, thousands of people zip by a hidden natural gem in the City of Brotherly Love. Nestled near Philadelphia International Airport and I-95 are about 1,000 acres of natural space. The John Heinz Wildlife Refuge boasts 10 miles of trails and an abundance of wildlife to enjoy while hiking.

Today, approximately 1.7 million people live within 10 miles of John Heinz. It is a birder’s paradise, providing ample nourishment for birds migrating along the Atlantic Flyway. The trail can also provide respite for weary urbanites seeking refuge in nature."
