FORT WASHINGTON STATE PARK

Fall Foliage Along the Green Ribbon Trail

Fall nature-lovers at Fort Washington State Park enjoy the Green Ribbon Trail, a 2.5-mile pathway that, this time of year, is dressed in brilliant hues that are just about any color other than green. The sparkly waters of the Wissahickon Creek make a visit even more magical.

Fort Washington State Park is great for an afternoon out with the family. The park has more than 300 picnic tables to enjoy a packed lunch. Fishermen can angle for catfish, carp and panfish. A softball field and nine-hole disc golf course are also available.
