    Wiss Permit

    I am just getting into the sport and was looking to ride at Wissahickon. Today I was on the parks page and it said you have to have a permit to ride on the trails. I don't have a problem with that but if I don't get it and want to ride there how strict are they about having one?

    No, but it is a nice way to contribute a little something toward trail maintenance, signage, overall upkeep of the park.

    But, it's up to you.

    That was pretty much my thought. My one friend lives just down the street from the one entrance to the park. I was there last night but didn't get to ride. It looks really nice and have no issues with giving a few bucks to keep it looking like it does.

    Here is a link to where you can download a permit application. They send you trail maps for the Wiss and PennyPack with your permit.
