About

Chamounix Dr - Trolley Trail entrance

4200 Chamounix Drive, Philadelphia. PA 19131

Chamounix Drive is a paved road in West Fairmount Park that stretches for two miles. Originally built as a "speedway" for horse drivers, today the drive is lined with historic landmarks, athletic courts, woods, meadows, and trail access points.  Chamounix Meadow is located right along Chamounix Drive in West Fairmount Park. It is one of the many meadows you'll find throughout the park. Be sure to visit during different seasons to see how the meadow changes throughout the year.
