Park Views



Best known of the recreational byways in the park is the Canal Towpath, but there are a number of additional trails available for hiking as well. There are 186 miles of trails in the park. The trail below, which runs along Brandywine Creek, has a trailhead which is located next to the Brandywine Inn.

This trail leads through the woods down the side of the gorge which contains the creek.

A unique feature of the trail is the stepping stone bridge which crosses Brandywine Creek.

Wetmore Trail is located in the eastern section of the park.

Another view of the Towpath Trail, which contains informational kiosks along its route, is shown below.
