From hikes lined with waterfalls to summits with epic views, these 11 hikes all offer a little something extra to keep your attention. Summer is winding down, fall is here (finally) and it’s the perfect time to take in a little more nature before winter hits.
Fall is one of the best seasons to hike, hands down, because the heat is not as scorching and you have the chance to check out some great fall foliage. But the hikes around Philly in the fall are particularly special. These towns and hiking trails around the city offer quiet areas with gushing waterfalls, shady woods, scenic views, and even a little history.
Bonus: all of these hikes are at most a two hours’ drive from Center City. So grab a water bottle and a camera, because at least one of these spots could become a new summer favorite.
