Ridley Creek State Park encompasses over 2,606 acres of Delaware County woodlands and meadows. The gently rolling terrain of the park, bisected by Ridley Creek, is only 16 miles from center city Philadelphia.

The trails can be very secluded. Brought my dog, we explored a quarter of it. was looking for the water fountain. deff found it. If u ask around ask for the dam. That's really what it is. U can find the dam (waterfall) on the creek. ask about the creek and u find it. The location of the waterfall is no where near the trails. For those chasing the falls lol.. other than that we enjoyed. the trails nothing complicated its very basic. Btw the waterfall is small so weather u wanna make that trip its on u. ppl are just good with taking photos. Like the one u will see of my dog lol...

Great day to hike the yellow trail in my favorite PA State Park.

on White Trail Loop

This is a great loop through a lot of Ridley Creek State Park. There is one spot around where the blue and the white trails meet where the lines on the map didn't jive with reality, but it was easily remedied.

This has been a favorite park for 15 years. The main loop is an easy walk and good for running and biking. It can get a bit busy on weekends and parking isn't always easy.

My default trail in the area, and a good one for all seasons. By starting a little bit up Chapel Hill Red, entire loop can be calculated at 5.0 miles (4.3 for path + 0.35 to start + 0.35 to parking spot on Chapel Hill Rd). Sticking with the 'right' side of the break presents you with a steady incline for appx 3.0 mi. Fairly crowded on weekends, but still worth the walk
