Longwood Gardens is a beautiful area, although I'm not sure if you can reach it by public transportation. Can you get a pass for zipcar?

GORP and backpacker magazine have some of my favorite outdoorsy information. I bet you'll find something there:

Have you explored Valley Forge? I understand there are lots of nice trails.

Hi, I live in Philadelphia and am having a hard time finding ways to be active outdoors within the confines of the city (I don't own a car) I commute by bike (40 minutes each way to work, plus various short trips throughout the week to run errands, go out, etc.) but that's about it. Any ideas for how to get outdoors in a large urban area, or in Philadelphia specifically? Or are there natural areas that can be reached by bike or a combination of bike / train that people know about? Thanks!
