The Hiking Trail Hiding In Philadelphia That Will Transport You To Another World

Walking through Center City, Old City, South Philly, and other neighborhoods will leave you with an appreciation for the urban planners that have worked to include plenty of green space in Philadelphia. We’re lucky to have a city with plenty of parks, open squares, trees, and hidden gems to explore. Even though our city is pretty and green in plenty of spots, if you’re a real nature lover, you’ll want to head north, towards Chestnut Hill. Make the trip to Wissahickon Park and you’ll be rewarded with the most incredible Philadelphia hike that makes you feel like you’re on another planet.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

There are so many great hiking trails around Philadelphia, but this will always remain one of my favorite. Do you have any great photos of your Wissahickon Park hike? Share them with us on the Only In Philadelphia Facebook page or on Instagram – tag #onlyinphiladelphia!
