      The "Wiss" has it all. Some short sections are easy, but most of the trails are rocky with some roots and the hills are up and down constantly. Not very beginner friendly. Follow the trails parallel to the Wissahickon Creek, it's very hard to get lost. But it's also tough to find all the best stuff without some trial and error. Link up with a local and get shown the goods.

      Note: Wissahickon Valley Park is not free; a permit is required to ride the trails.
