Nice trails, well maintained and good for runs or walks. These trails are definitely on the easy side and I usually don't see a whole lot of people so it's relaxing. Make your way back to the back woods trail, there is some history back there...
Nice trail around the university. Little off trails and well graveled/groomed.
The location on the directions map is wrong. The directions map show Haverford College Nature Trail which is a couple miles away. The Haverford Reserve Trails are on the grounds of the old Haverford State Hospital main entrance is off Darby Rd. Search for the CREC Center in Havorford 9000 Parkview Dr. Haverford PA 19041 to get directions to the actual Haverford Reserve Trails. If you are already at The Haverford College Nature trail. Just take College Ave away form Lancaster Ave towards Haverford Ave. College will dead End on Darby Rd Couple miles at most. . Make a Left on Darby in a few blocks the Main entrance will be on the right (Parkview Drive). At 1st you will be driving through residential/construction before you get to the CREC Center and various Trails/Ball fields/playgrounds & dog Park etc. It is a nice addition to the Haverford Twp area.
Very scenic & relaxing. Felt like you were in a far off forest despite being close to the city. My only critique is that the loop wasnt marked too well & it was semi difficult knowing where we were. Im sure a 2nd visit would help to understand the trail better.
loved it here! walked for hours through the trails
This park was an easy and pretty way to get away from the city and suburban life.
