Wissahickon Valley Park
Wissahickon Valley Park is a rustic, natural park that offers numerous hiking, biking, horseback riding, and other recreational opportunities. Forbidden Drive is a well traveled biking, walking, and bridle trail that follows the Wissahickon from Manayunk through the Valley. There are also miles of side trails that wind through the wooded hillside. The Valley Green Inn offers exceptional dining in a 19th century roadside inn along Forbidden Drive. The Wissahickon Environmental Center at the Andorra Natural Area is a great educational venue for school groups and offers a variety of programs, including a summer day camp. The Wissahickon Valley is one of fewer than 600 National Natural Landmarks in America.
