“A technical trail with lots of rocks, some scrambling, and nice views.”— Scott Spencer
In between is a pretty technical set of trails that take you through some really pretty territory.
The trail winds down the Wissahickon Creek and passes by covered bridges, dams, light rapids and crosses streams.
Check out the covered bridge in the first third of the trail and the Fingerspan bridge sculpture in the last third. This sculpture had to be helicoptered into place!
The trail is not marked very clearly, so make sure you pay attention at intersections etc. When in doubt stay closer to the creek and use the Trail Run Project mobile app to make sure you stay on track.
