So this trail is awesome. Definitely would take standford to brandywine gorge trail. It was peaceful on that side. Now if you think it is a typical national park... it’s not... but needless to say it’s still really awesome. Hope this is helpful to other looking to go!

The trail itself was pretty chill and not as scenic as I hoped, but towards the end, the trail gets a bit steep, which amps up the excitement a bit, and voila - a thunderous 60 ft waterfall as the big ending. Definitely, this waterfall alone was worth it. I probably wouldn’t hike the whole trail again but would go straight to the waterfall.

This was cement path in very good condition with incredible beauty around each corner. Even though it was a very easy and short hike, it was well worth the time.

This is a beautiful trail full of ferns and wildlife. This is my first time here, and being strapped for time my hike had to be pretty short but I will be returning in the future for sure to explore more of this enchanting place. :)

trail was easy to follow, no real need for hiking boots trainers would be fine. I added extra by going up to the next bridge after the covered bridge and going to the first weir.

I left Stanford House around 6:45 a.m. on a Monday morning and saw more rabbits than people on my hike. There was no one else at the Brandywine Falls overlook while I was there, which was nice. Most of the hike was in the shade, another plus.

Fun, easy, and well maintained! Great first hike for our 6 month old in his Poco carrier. We enjoyed this trail just as much as ledges!

Trail needs maintenance. A lot of trail dead end closures due to fallen trees and rock slides. Nice view of being by the river, but up keep is needed to get this trail back to its prime.

Beautiful trail. Busy down by the falls but that’s to be expected on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon.

Ok views of the falls from above. Views are blemished by lots of people being off the trail and in the water despite signs asking then to remain on trail.

When starting from the east side off of Canal Road, Hike the trail that is north side of the river. South side is very overgrown. Previous reviews are incorrect saying south side is better, completely overgrown, no path in spots for several hundred feet. If you expect to cross the river you’re feet will get wet, about 3-9 inches deep. Didn’t see a single person the entire hike though!

Beautiful trail! Moderate path to hike, some parts not so easy for social distancing, however everyone was very respectful to give space!

We had a great time today hiking in the Germantown MetroPark! I was very impressed with how well the trails are marked and maintain! One word of caution! Most of the lowland, especially by the creeks, was covered with stinging Nettle! We got off the main trail onto an unmarked trail by mistake that took us through a really bad patch of nettle! We had to stop and wipe down our legs with wet wipes to calm the intense burning. We noticed throughout the rest of our 10 mile hike, lots of nettle patches. Some so big, we dubbed them the nettle Forests. We’re going back next weekend, and will have plenty of wet wipes!

This was a beautiful hike and it's kids friendly as well. There was so much to see. So many pit stops telling you all about land formations, flowers, insects, etc... Our kids really enjoyed The Arch & Falls trail!
