I would consider myself a very active and athletic individual. I compete in judo, I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, road biking, running and keeping fit. So, when I met a couple who were looking for their first home, one of the first requirements they stated to me about the location was easy access to road biking, trails for mountain biking and hiking, I knew that I would be able to give them valuable insight on great places for outdoor activities in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery Counties.
I told the couple about Wissahickon Park and Forbidden Drive, a great place to hit the trails for mountain biking, hiking and running. Wissahickon is ideal location for residents of Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery county seeking to get active and a taste of nature so close to the city. Beginning in Philadelphia and traveling through Manayunk, Conshohocken, Valley Forge, to Oaks and further north is the Schuykill River Trail, a cyclist’s safe-haven for miles of trails with minimal car traffic. Valley Forge National Park is also an ideal spot for outdoor enthusiasts. In Delaware County, Brandywine Park offers many mountain biking trails and also the Brandywine River for those who enjoy water sports, such as kayaking. These are just a few of the locations for outdoor activities that are located in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery Counties.
