This small loop trail at Independence National Historical Park is a short 0.6 mile loop walk through the grounds of the park in the hear of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Along the walk are various historical sights like the first national bank of the United States, the first United States Naval office, and the first medical school by the University of Pennsylvania.

Unlike the rest of Independence National Historical Park, this loop brings you through the free section of the park. If you want to see Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, etc you'll need to pay to enter the other half of the park.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
