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 enjoyed this trail (this time with my dog). There are plenty of steep hills and some nice views. I only came across a few people while on the trail for a couple hours, though there were several cars parked in the gravel (free) lot I parked at. There was also a moderate amount of wildlife.

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.
