Wissahickon Valley Park
Wissahickon Valley Park contains 2,000+ acres of parkland in Northwest Philadelphia, including the Wissahickon Creek. Visitors travel by foot, bicycle, and horse along Forbidden Drive where motor vehicles are not allowed, and there are many historic sites to be seen. Side trails off Forbidden Drive lead up into the wooded gorge above the creek along a total of 50 miles of trails. The park is the second largest part of the city's parkland areas, after the slightly larger Fairmount Park. The Wissahickon Valley was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1964.
