An escape from big city life to walk the 5.3 mile trail along the beautiful Wissahickon creek in Philadelphia. Some bicyclists, some horseback riders, occasional horse buggies, some runners, but mostly leisurely walkers. Stop at the Valley Green Inn, sit on the porch, eat and have a drink, and watch the trail's varieties. When I was a kid, we called it "walking the Wissahickon", but for the past 30-40 years it's been know as the Forbidden Trail, I suppose because cars are forbidden.
