The Wissahickon Green Ribbon Trail
FOLIAGE FACTS: The changing leaves of large sycamores, hackberrys, box elders, and ash trees give color to this quiet three-mile trail running beside the Wissahickon Creek. Along the creek you may also see Wood Ducks, Great Blue Heron, and at the beginning of the trail you can climb the Hawk Watching Tower to scan the skies for migrating raptors that are often seen in September and October.

ACCESS: Valley Green Road, Wissahickon. The trail starts in Manayunk, where the Schuylkill River meets Wissahickon Creek and runs to the Upper Gwynedd Township in Montgomery County. Though there are many access points along the way, the only designated parking is at the Fairmont Park trailhead in Chestnut Hill and at the Fort Washington Park in Whitemarsh Township The lower section can be accessed below the parking area of the State Park's Militia Hill Day Use Area.
