The area around Devon has historically been associated with the Philadelphia elite, who would commute between their homes in the city and their estates in the western countryside. The estates are somewhat more subdivided now, but you don’t need to go far off the beaten path to see horse farms and country clubs. From the Friendship Park driveway, turn left onto Bear Hill Road (PA 252). Cross carefully, because the highway is busy at this point. After 0.1 mile, turn left onto Maple Avenue, and after another 0.1 mile turn right onto Russell Road. This part of the ride travels through a residential neighborhood about a block north of the railroad line. When Russell Road ends in a T intersection, turn left onto Old Lancaster Road, bike another 0.4 mile, and then turn left onto West Conestoga Road.
