Looking for a good way to social distance while enjoying nature and beer? Head down to the Wissahickon to hike or bike some trails, and then finish the day with a pint at Attic Brewing Company. With over 50 miles of trails, Wissahickon Valley Park is a great place to spend the remaining days of Fall.
The Wissahickon was where the Lenni Lenape used to hunt and fish. Eventually, Forbidden Drive was the site of numerous taverns and roadhouses. Those taverns and roadhouses are gone now, but you can find evidence of their existence throughout the park.
It’s our job to chip in and preserve this beautiful park, so make sure to pack all the items you took in with you. The Friends of the Wissahickon rely on volunteers and visitors to care for the 1,800 acre park for the natural wildlife that live there. If you're lucky, you might see some of the wildlife that lives there. The Wissahickon is home to owls, chickadees, woodpeckers, bluejays, cardinals and many more!
We love having a park of this magnitude in our breweries backyard. It’s a great way to get out of the city and get out of your own head. Go enjoy the fresh air before treating yourself with a fresh pint.
