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 trail for a hike with two dogs. Encountered a lot of mountain bikers and some trail runners. Everyone was very friendly. I wouldn't consider it moderate. It was pretty easy. I did choose this hike because I'm trying to complete the DE State Park Trail Challenge. According to the map and my GPS, I walked the whole trial, but I didn't find the symbol. Awe shucks...guess that means I have to go back :)
there is some good mountain biking here if you are a more advanced biker. lots of rooty and rocky side trails. good uphill climbs must have decent cardio. could give it more stars if the trails were longer. but if you look around there is some fun challenging stuff.
Easy loop around the pond. Saw a flying squirrel! Very nice nature center aiming toward sustainability. Well kept Disc Golf course in the same area. Very quiet in December. Almost no one else around. Free access after November for the off-season.
