Brandywine Creek State Park

Various • 14 mi • 0 ft

The lovely Brandywine Creek weaves its way through Chester County, Pennsylvania, and Delaware to join the Delaware River. Along the way the creek has created a valley of stunning natural beauty. Rolling hillsides, charming fieldstone houses, back-country roads, and rural open lands, all contribute to the charm of this lovely area. Over the years, the river has seen more than 100 mills on its banks, producing everything from flour, paper, black powder, snuff, and textiles. Today, the Brandywine River Valley is a major tourist area, attracting visitors from all across the United States to its beautiful rural landscape and its rich history. The off-road tails within Brandywine State Park offer some of the best singletrack riding and it's just a short drive from Philadelphia and Wilmington. There are many spur trails that connect with the main blaze trails, including the Brandywine Bike Trail that follows along Brandywine Creek, so feel free to explore these trails to add more riding time. Terrain: Singletrack, doubletrack, dirt, and paved roads. Mostly tight single track, with some short rocky sections and wide doubletrack trails. Pass rolling hills and farmland. This is a 795-acre park with over 14 miles of trails. Connects with Woodlawn Land Trust.
