* New category (1) this week. I love cyclists and think mountain biking is awesome. This is just a matter of gathering park user information.

* New category (2) this week. I love horses and think riding horses is awesome. So are the stables around the park. This is just a matter of gathering park user information.

– Man does the connection between Carpenter’s Woods and Wissahickon Park proper suck. For as lovely as Carpenter’s Woods is (what a magnificent neighborhood park), that you have to walk on very busy Wissahickon Avenue is a drag. Plus there’s always tons of litter there from people who throw it out their car. If a trail can’t go under the really old Wissahickon Ave superstructure (and it can’t, because money), there at least ought to be a trail to the corner of Mt Pleasant and Wissahickon with a state law pedestrian crossing and new painted stripes there. And the dog who lives at the house where the Ellet Trail dumps you onto Wissahickon Ave is always barking and barking and barking.
– There should be a trail along Carpenter’s Run from Kitchens Lane to the trail at Scotforth Rd.
– The trailhead at the corner of Mt Pleasant Ave & Mt Pleasant Pl (the nexus of pleasant Philadelphia) could be better marked.
– Cardinal sound: peel peel woop woop woop wupwupwupwup
– Problem area: area below Climbers Rock to Orange Trail.
– Tire below Climbers Rock and above Orange Trail.
– Hunk of metal on beach below Orange Trail at Climbers Rock.
– For the first time, there was real craft beer litter: a 22oz bottle of Sierra, a 12oz can of Sly Fox.
