Rolling forest hike to Brandywine Creek, on old DuPont family Farms Beautiful forest hike up and down hills to Brandywine Creek then back up and through some very large tulip trees. Look for the stone fences which marked the borders of the Du Pont family fields. The trail is well marked with yellow trail markers.

This is a nice trail. We went on a Sunday afternoon and there was hardly anyone here. beautiful look at the nearby creek and the stone walls are all around. A few Meadows along the way too. Lots of rocks as well.

Parking and access to the trail is available in Brandywine Creek State Park (fee).There are bathrooms at the Nature Center. The trail begins behind the Nature Center. The trail descends gradually on rocky terrain before leveling off on a grassy surface as it reaches the Brandywine River. The trail follows the river before turning left and ascending moderately over rocky terrain. The trail levels off at the top of the hill and follows a gradual grade through forests and fields back to an open field north of the Nature Center.

The Indian Springs Trail also connects with the Hidden Pond Trail. The pond was dry today. Both trails are well marked and well maintained, and are in mostly wooded areas. There is also 3.1 mile cross country trail which is more exposed to the sun.

There are two trails here, hidden pond and indian springs. Both are quick (about 2 miles each), beautiful, and well maintained.
