Amazing trail! First time on it. Went with sister and mom. Beautiful dirt path with tall trees and streams. Some steep parts of the trail. But definitely worth it! 10/10 would do again!

Great little hiking trails. The Blue trail was really cute with cut out logs and a picnic table along the creek. Beautiful and easy to navigate!

The old mill and water tower combined with pleasant creek views make this a great place with historical significance to the area.

Thank you to person who left Easter Rocks all over the trail. It was fun and it made us look all over.

We enjoyed that it’s a short hilly trail that has the sound of the Brandywine river as we hike. The mill on the property is also cool and makes you want to know more about the area. I know a lot of local people help keep the trail and area looking good. Thank you for that. We like it if you need a 45- hour walk up & down a hillside.

Did this loop twice with kids and dog. Kids loved it! Lots to climb and explore. Not too busy, but it could be difficult to social distance if needed due to narrow trail at many points.

It’s a short, easy and pretty trail. Southern end gets close to the creek and northern end goes thru a mini pine forest.

Did the south loop trail this weekend with my dad & 10 year old son, and we all really enjoyed it! Absolutely beautiful, and we really liked how they left everything undisturbed (ie cutting a notch out of a dead tree that went over the trail so you could walk over it, instead of moving it). Will definitely be back!

We only did the south loop. We would have done more had it not been for the traffic noise. It’s a shame about the traffic noise because it really is a nice hike.

Gorgeous and well-maintained. The trails are great and there is a garden as well as a butterfly area that I enjoy going to.

This park has been a work in progress for many years and it's great to see it come so far with the help of many hands. I know there are boy scouts, a township commission and a weekly volunteer crew who work to keep the trails maintained and the park beautiful. I saw a lot of families and dogs out using some of the loops. I went up to the water tower for a nice breather but the stream trail is nice too

This was a nice surprise! This is a small wooded park behind the historic Bondsville Mill ruins. There is a Creek and a few trails with small foot bridges and rock steps. The ruins seem to be getting a little restoration and markers explain the history of the area.

We did the trails at this park yesterday (in January a few hours before snowfall). It was a great hike, nice variation in terrain. The mud was frozen in tiny stalagmite icicles in places and it was very cool to see. We did the red trail coupled with the blue trail which combined made it a 1.6 mile loop. You can also add in the white and yellow trails to make it closer to 2 miles (maybe even a smidge over). We will definitely be coming back!
