Nice starting point at Bradford park. Walk towards the bridge on path and turn right down dirt path. it follows the Brandywine with some neat scenery and places to let the dog go for a romp in the water. There's a connection trail or two to get back on to the parks paved path. Not marked though, gotta look for them.

I love the Harmony Hill side of the trail. This review is for the Downingtown side. You can connect from the Bradford parking area to the Struble Trail by crossing over 322. Once on Bradford, make a left onto the trail. It’s muddy, rocky, with plenty of side trails all leading to the same place. I went with the paths with higher elevation on the way out and stuck with the blazes on the way back. Then, the trail ends and your cutting through backyards and traveling along city streets. What you’re left with is white blazes through 3 Downingtown parks. The trail follows the eastern branch of the Brandywine and continues under Lincoln Highway to Kerr Park. You can then continue into Kardon Park and onto the Struble Trail.

Started in downtown Downingtown. Paved around Ballfield into a residential area. On Glendale Road just before the tunnel there is a faint trail on the right-hand side. Follow that up the side of the tunnel there is a white blaze Trail, you follow that until you can see a graffiti covetable backtrack slightly to find a double Bleise follow that white trail until you come to Bradford Avenue where it joins 322 cross and continue on paved trail. Alternatively drive 322 until you come to parking lot and join trail there.
