Enjoy a veritable arboretum along the Pennypack Creek in all of its glory, plus the recently developed Pennypack rail trail in Montgomery County. This shady wooded course wends gently from the shores of the Delaware River through the city to pastoral suburbs, offering a variety of footbridges and interesting old bridges passing over the trail. We will see where Lenape tribal councils took place, where the most historic train wreck in the Delaware Valley tragically unfolded, and where the oldest bridge in the nation, built in 1697, remains in service to local traffic.
