The reservoir rim path is around 1 1/2 miles, with the outer walkway offering around 2 miles. There is parking on the north side, off Precision way, which also services the Disc golf course. There is a parking lot to the south off Kibble road, which also serves the boat ramp to put fishing boats on the water.

Trail is beautiful and easy, stair cases and a beautiful view of the waterfall make this a treat to see. Easy for kids, so good as a family outing. Would see this again.

Can combine with the other out-back trail to make as much as 8 Miles. Be careful after heavy rains or snow melts...trail is pretty low and can have areas flood. Very well marked. Lot of wild life, deer are nearly tame. Clean bathrooms and lots of parking. Highly recommend

Very scenic! Was pretty greasy because of all the moisture so was fairly difficult throughout most of the hike! Will definitely revisit when it dries out!

This is a beautiful place.

My friend and I visited here on a cold and clear beautiful sunny March day, and had the place to ourselves. It was a very nice walk, not overly strenuous but there is something about coming upon man made structures left to rot in the middle of a forest that fascinates me every time. I give this hike five stars simply because of the interesting history at the end of the trail...and because there were no crowds!

Beautiful trail and great side trails for dog walking!

Beautiful!! Can get icy depending on the weather but a lot of fun!

It muddy n not marked very well

This trail was easy, has some stairs and elevation changes. We took the dog and he enjoyed it. The surroundings were all pretty and the waterfall was beautiful with all the ice in the winter.

Easy shaded trail on the boardwalk. Kids loved looking at the rocks. The falls were beautiful.

Nice little trail through bits of forest, around a small lake, and areas of wild bird-friendly tall grass.

There are six other trails around this small park, as well as three horse trails. There are a few nice campsites to rent here, too, and a shelter for people to have family reunions/bbqs, etc.

Very well marked trails, easy to follow. A few ups and downs, but overall easy trail and can complete in less than 2 hours.

Easy trail to get out and experience nature. There were lots of folks with their kids on the trail. Lots of people also with dogs. To reach the Brandywine Falls is accessible by wooden walkway which is an easy way to get a great photo of the falls!
I enjoyed it for a 1.5! mile brisk walk with my dogs on a late November day! November 25, 2017

I love this trail, go all the time with the dogs.

I really enjoyed this trail .It’s short and sweet easy to navigate and was a great autumn hike. The waterfall is awesome and such great views ! If you’re a bigger guy like me this trail does offer some challenges. The terrain is manageable but rocky and luckily it was dry otherwise mud would have been a factor. There are some pretty decent inclines. They are gradual but I did have to take my time. The loop trail does have benches and stones big enough to take a breather.

10 deer!

BEWARE! My car was broken into as my son and I were hiking here. I had nothing in sight sitting my my car and they busted out my widow and went through everything. According the the police officer, it happens frequently here. I was also advised by a fellow hiker there was a child missing in the woods while we were there. Didn't give us good vibes.
The trail I will say wasn't bad. We did the Yellow loop but I wouldn't chance going here ever again!

Great trail to walk on. You can see slit of deer on the trail

Nice hike with access to water. Dog loved it. Met very few people (3) during the hike.

Made for a very pleasant day..plenty of places you'll want to stop and enjoy along the way.

I believe I went off trail to get up close to the falls but it was a BEAUTIFUL site.

really pretty trail. lots of different terrain keeps it interesting

Beautiful Brisk walk. Also a lot more to do. Walk this trail and walk down to Wallace lake. And see the Waterfall. You can walk across the street and to the butterfly trail. BEAUTIFUL BACK IN THEM WOODS. It has a big hill at the end that some people might not want to walk back up. Saw a family of deer laying down. Beautiful view of the Rocky.river from above. NOTE: this was all on the Butterfly trail across the street.

Well marked path with lots of exercise equipment.

Great pit stop on the way home back from Harpers Ferry

Great trail

Brandywine Gorge trail was not at all Hard. The only hard part about it was going up the rocky hill. My 3 year old son made it NO PROBLEM. Beautiful waterfall and park all around. Only down fall was, That It was not Fall time when I went. I will be going back come November .

Fantastic first hike with my teenagers!
