On this easy hike, which is mostly flat, you begin by crossing over the East Branch of Brandywine Creek. From there you hike past historic homes and barns as you make your way to a mowed path through a field of bright yellow coneflowers on a trail that leads to the pond. From there it’s on through a woodland to the rolling hills of a hayfield where you hike the tree line alongside the field to complete your circle back to the main intersection and on to the trail that returns you to the parking lot.
