Took our 12 week old husky for a long walk. So much for her to explore. And people are so friendly. Met many other people doing the same thing! She was wiped out afterwards!

Its not a super beautiful area - its the woods next to at times, the creek. Its a flat trail that is paved with many access points.

Took my dog here for the first time. Lots of activity here for sure. We met 3 dogs along our walk and he decided to check out the water as well. Good short trail.

Nice scenic walkway along the East Branc of the Brandywine Creek, Very peaceful and quiet with lots of vegetation to look at in spring, summer and fall, and lovely views in the winter.

This trail runs along a creek and is very flat and perfect walking and biking. It runs from the old paper mill to down town Downingtown. Part way through you can connect with the Uwchlan trail which has more elevation changes. Both trail run through...More

I walk this trail several times a week and love taking company here. It is a well-maintained, level trail with occasional security patrol-ers on bike or afoot. They did a beautiful job renovating the parking lot at Dorlan Mills. It is a beautiful, peaceful place...More
