    In order to protect Cobbs Creek, in 1911 Cobbs Creek Park was established as a greenway running through several neighborhoods just west of center city Philadelphia. With much input by residents and park users, in 2011 plans were undertaken to develop the 3.7-mile Cobbs Creek Trail (CCT). Highlights of the route include a dense tree canopy which provides welcome relief on hot days, and access to such sites as Cobbs Creek Community Environmental Education Center, Laura Sims Skate House, Mount Moriah Cemetery, and several playgrounds. With limited street crossings, a flat paved surface, and historic and educational sites to explore, the CCT is an ideal family destination.

     

    From the trail it is possible to access the 58th Street Greenway, an off-road trail that leads to historic Bartram’s Gardens, and the Schuylkill River Trail. In the future plans are to link to the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge via the Cobbs Creek Connector Trail. The CCT is already part of the vast network of trails that encompass the East Coast Greenway, and once connecting trails are complete, will be integrated more fully into The Circuit. The CCT runs from Market Street and 63rd Street to Cobbs Creek Parkway and 70th Street.

     

    The Cobbs Creek Trail is a part of the Circuit Trails, a vast regional network of hundreds of miles of multi-use trails that is growing in size each year. Explore 100s of miles of happy at CircuitTrails.org

     

    The trail is open from dawn to dusk.
