cool fall foliage but the trail isn't marked well in all areas so it's easy to end up in a neighborhood. close to highways means it can be noisy. definitely saw a prostitute "working" in a truck when we first arrived.
OK trail. More of an exercise bike path for the majority of the trail, which runs along & involves crossing a highway. This makes most of the trail noisy and rather boring. Not much time in the woods, and when you are there are very little to no markings. Very easy to wind up on a bike path and off the main trail... wouldn't hike again...
The trail is well maintained but noisy. I wouldn't repeat it.
Nice hike. No loop, though. Awesome ruins. Wish there was a better opening to Crum Creek.
Enjoyed it !
Pretty good hike. We stopped at the streams and climbed the ridge. Nice area and even saw some deer.
we love this park and come here frequently! Our dog loves all the different trails!
Good day! Hiked up ridge to mountain bike trails. Saw small herd white tailed deer! Saw another dog jump in the creek
Great place to explore!
pretty straight run... No loop... There might be more trails there but the Weaver trail ended shortly
Sorry Garnett, turns out it's the railroad bridge replacement. Nature lovers appreciate all Swarthmore College does to protect and preserve earth's natural environment/resources.
Best keep secret in Delco for many years. Unfortunately Swarthmore College land-rape current underway at the base of the railroad trestle and mini water fall.
I've been on it 3 times going from near the leiper house, which is also worth a visit, to Smedley park. The only real difficulty is crossing the Baltimore pike though the trail leaves you at a red light Crossway. it's narrow and you cross the Blue Route via road bridge twice. I like it.
