Cobbs Creek Trail
Explore this amazing greenway that runs along the edge of Cobbs Creek Park. Bike on more than 4 miles of paved trail through West and Southwest Philadelphia. Visit destinations along the way like Cobbs Creek Environmental Center where you can access a dirt trail that follows the creek and the historic Mt. Moriah Cemetery. Cobbs Creek Trail has a transit connection to the Market-Frankford El at 63rd Street, so bring your bike onboard and get exploring.
Tacony Creek Trail
Visit the bird murals near the Whitaker Ave gateway and explore this natural oasis in some of the city’s most densely populated neighborhoods. The main trailheads are near the intersections of Ramona Ave and I St, and Adams Ave and Crescentville Rd, but you will find numerous gateways along the way with access to neighborhoods adjacent to the park.
Schuylkill River Trail
The Schuylkill River Trail is arguably one of the best in the region, but it’s definitely the longest trail with over 11 miles just in Philly, and over 25 more through Western Montgomery County. The GoPhillyGo SRT- Center City Tour has all the trail gateways between the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the trailhead near Christian St, and you will find other great destinations near the SRT on GoPhillyGo including the Fairmount Water Works, Parks on Tap, and the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education.
John Heinz NWR
Looking for an exciting natural habitat to explore by bike? John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge has miles of unpaved trails leading through tidal marshland, meadows, forests, and around a lake. This enormous wildlife refuge straddles Delaware County and Southwest Philadelphia, and is home to a wide range of native and migratory bird species so bring your binoculars and look for bald eagles, great egrets, hawks, and great blue herons.
