Are you ready for the challenge of trails? Fairmount Ave. at the entrance to the Eastern State Penitentiary. We have carpooled to Wissahickon Valley Park, to take on the hills and rugged terrain. Overall, it's a slower pace than on the roads, but it is also less impact on the feet & knees.
 
**Get Directions to all of the above.**
