Peace Valley offers 14 miles of nature trails in the woods and meadows at the eastern end of Lake Galena. Doylestown is nearby and offers many great restaurants and historical sites of interest. The town also has several bed and breakfasts. The trails vary from mown grass paths to remote, moderately technical trails through the woods. Some paths are mowed or graveled and have bridges or stone steps at creek crossings. Others are more "primitive." Nice, peaceful surroundings and plenty of lakeviews. Water and restrooms are available.

6 mile loop. Perfect for training. Beautiful scenery. It's fairly popular on weekends but it's big enough that it doesn't cause a problem. The loop isn't really a hiking trail. I can't speak to any others.

Was wondering if it was if it was OK to metal detect these trails??

Beautiful park, sculpted and manicured grasses, all the vegetation is cut back from the asphalt trail so you don't risk getting ticks or bugs on you. Usually there's a good amount of hikers and bikers using the trail, though, so if you're looking for something isolated or meditative, this might not be the one.

This park has a lot to offer. Hiking trails are easy and can be completed quickly. The lake is privately owned provides kayaking and fishing. High foot traffic almost everyday in this park.

Great little trails that were not paved. Some of the trails were more well maintained that others, but all were clearly marked. Took a map of the trails with me that is accessible through the Lake Galena website. We even saw a few deers along these trails.
Took the family and we all had a blast.
