This 933-acre park is divided by grey stone walls built of local stone in the late 1800's. At that time the property was a dairy farm owned by the du Pont family. This unique area became a state park in 1965, one of the first parks in the nation to be purchased with Land and Water Conservation Funds.

I rated this 3 stars as it is relative to other places I've hiked. that being said, this is a nice reasonably flat section of trail. I've done quite a bit in brandywine and you can continue all the way up into pa or go all the way down past the parking area into a group of other trails. this here is the easiest section. we like to use brandywine as a place to acclimate our bodies with weighted packs for more difficult trips.

Great creek side walk. Great scenery, nice flat trail. would liked to have taken the mountain trail to the right, but, late night last night. looking forward to hiking the rest before the leaves disappear:)

possibilities are endless here. the scenery is a great reason to hike here is you are short on time. you can get a decent effort in under 2 hours.
