This beautiful two-day walk follows the Schuylkill River and the full length of the Wissahickon Creek upstream from the Schuylkill to its source and beyond.

This second day is all new territory for FreeWalkers, including the upper Wissahickon up to its source along the Green Ribbon Trail, with traces of the valley's industrial past powered by the creek. We finish with a full length walk of the 202 Parkway Trail to charming Doylestown, a great place for us to stop for dinner after. Quick train ride back to Fort Washington or straight through to Center City.
