Andorra Natural Area Professional Review and Guide

"If you’re looking for a place in the city of Philadelphia where you can get away from it all, this hike just might be the place for you. This is an easy hike that takes you through a natural area, which once was a famous nursery, on a network of well-marked, color-coded trails.

You’ll get a chance to see a fenced enclosure that shows what the area would look like without the wildlife munching on the understory. The trail then leads you to the ruins of Black Farm, which you can explore before you reach the giant magnolia tree that has fallen and is today called the Fallen Magnolia."
