Urban Escape

For being close to the city of Philadelphia there could not be a better way to get out for a good trail run or hike and not have to drive. For most outdoor people this is a quick (30min.) bike ride from Center City along the Schuylkill bike paths to East Falls. There is some good mountain biking up through the trails. FYI... it can be busy on weekends but manageable.

Valley Green Inn

Awesome brunch spot!
