Marsh Creek State Park is in the rolling hills of northcentral Chester County. The 1,727-acre park contains the 535-acre Marsh Creek Lake, which is great for fishing, sailing and is a reststop for migrating waterfowl.

Easy, not stressful at all. We walked it while carrying lots of fishing equipment. There are many smaller trails that lead off of the main trail to get to the water to fish

Blue trail from West boat launch

Nice flow, some upkeep needed on wooden crossings and trail could be marked a little better but overall an enjoyable ride-

A great hike on a beautiful day. I did lose track of markers for awhile on the return loop but map was a great help.

Awesome place to mountain bike!

Beautiful area! I would call this an easy hike though, not moderate. The trails are not well marked, so it's easy to get off the main trail, but there is awesome scenery around so what's not to love. Hikers: Be cautious of mountain bikers. The trails are narrow and I almost got taken out by a few bikers shooting around blind corner. Mountain bikers: keep an eye out for hikers and be mindful of controlling speed around corners.

Very muddy today, but great hike. The smell of honey sucks that hit you throughout your hike is wonderful.

Nice. Trails were well maintained, but not always clearly marked, and many side trails (my only complaint and it's not a big one). Great scenery. Was cold and muddy but a cold, muddy day on the trail is still a great day! Will do it again.

Marsh creek was awesome. So many things to do. We brought our own kayaks but your you can show up and rent them as well as paddle boards. Bring a lunch and make a day of it! Can't wait to go back!

The first mile and a half is well maintained and has a lot of places to go in the water. Excellent for dogs. After that it's through the woods, which is generally well maintained. There was one point where the trail split and I took the way that was highlighted in red. it went through a field with crazy tall grass and not maintained at all. I would recommend taking the dotted blue portion on the way out instead.

Beautiful place during the week if you can get out when it's a lot less crowded. Great running/hiking on the trails but lots of mtn bikers, although everyone I've come across has been respectful of others on the trails. And can't beat being able to hop in your kayak and paddle around the large lake after a good trail run. Decent fishing here too. Good place for families and dogs..just a little crowded on the weekends. The west side boat launch is where I usually start my runs and put my kayak in.

They allow hunting which I found strange and put me on edge a bit.
