We will see temperatures on the rise, which means it’s a great time to get back outdoors. We are fortunate to have the Wissahickon Trail. The name of the neighborhood comes from the Lenni Lenape word wisameckham, for “catfish creek“, a reference to the fish that were once plentiful in the Wissahickon Creek. The Wissahickon Valley Park contains some 50 miles of trails.Hikers can enjoy the 7-mile long gravel and asphalt Wissahickon Valley Park Trail – Forbidden Drive. Forbidden Drive got its name when the turnpike was closed to cars.
