Forbidden Drive

November 2, 2015 – I’ve lived in Philadelphia practically my entire life, so imagine my surprise when I learned about a new trail through my fair city.

The Forbidden Drive, also known as Wissahickon Valley Park Trail is seven miles in length and winds through a sometimes tame and sometimes rugged trail along the Wissahickon Creek. It was named Forbidden Drive because in the 1920s, cars were banned from it. It’s now a haven for hikers, dog walkers and bike riders who like a little challenge and lots of beautiful scenery.

The autumn colors are a bit passed their peak, but they were still lovely for my early Saturday morning walk.
