Nice loop trail mostly along the edge of the creek. A little muddy and overgrown in places but not bad. The $8 entrance fee for non-DE residents will keep me from returning as there are better free options in PA.

Beautiful location; however, there is an $8.00 fee for out of state visitors, $4.00 for locals.

Very peaceful for the most part. More traffic than I expected, including families with kids and dogs off leash. Very enjoyable.

This is a great local hike. You can add smaller connecting trails to lengthen the hike.

It is not a long hike but it is quite hilly. Part of the walk you spend by the Brandywine Creek and the rest is going up and down hills. There are nice views and I find it the most beautiful during the fall when the trees are changing colors.

Not a very exciting hike. Muddy trails, not always marked well. The best part was the water rapids. I would say it's a family friendly place, with picnic tables and a nice nature center.
