Best Places to See Fall Foliage Near Philly
We all blinked, summer came and passed, and now fall is knocking at our doors. While beach days may be behind us, the promise of crisp air, fresh apples, and pumpkin everything make fall basically the best season.
If you live in a sprawling city like Philadelphia, it may be slightly harder to note the minute changing of seasons in the beginning. But if you venture just a few miles out, Lori Litchman, author of 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Philadelphia, shows us the best hikes for spotting fall foliage.
Upper Trails – Wissahickon Valley Park—The Wissahickon is my favorite place to hike. I love it there. You can’t go wrong hiking there. And the fall foliage is amazing anywhere in the park. That being said, the best place to really feel fall in the Wissahickon is at the Thomas Mill Covered Bridge. It’s the only remaining covered bridge in a major US city and it’s right in our backyard. Park at Bells Mill Road.
