Old Wissahickon Road is a steep fire road to climb up from lower Mairdale Ave to access trails on the north side of Riverview via connections to Wildflower Trail
and Wissahickon Trail
. The road starts off as a gravel path and ends at a small plateau. There is a short connector trail between the plateau and the Wissahickon Trail
An easier climbing option is the Snowflake Trail
, which is a longer option with a few switchbacks which brances off to the left at the base of Old Wissahickon Road.
Parking is available at the small lot at the base of this trail, right off Mairdale Ave.
