There are a number of interesting and fascinating features on this easy hike, but the most striking feature is the gray-stone walls that run alongside and throughout the park. The walls were constructed by Italian masons for the du Pont family back in the 1800s, when the land that is now the park was their dairy farm. Add to this, rolling hills, beautifully maintained trails through woodlands, the Tulip Tree Woods Nature Preserve, and of course, the centerpiece of the park, Brandywine Creek, and you are all set for a very pleasant hike. Be sure to bring your camera, your children, and a picnic lunch.
