The start of the trail is just near our house. It was really good to have a nice walk during the mornings, beautiful sceneries, lots of trees and animals can be seen while strolling.

Wissahickon Valley Park is a great place for walk with your dog, or a picknic with a loved one. Check out Felix Leiter USMC on Amazon and look for Felix Leiter CIA coming soon.

It's not convenient to get to. But once you get there, you won't want to leave. Just walk. Take the side paths.

Checked out the Wissahickon Valley Park on a bike ride. Paved rolling hills are great for getting in a workout.
