Nice scenic walkway along the East Branc of the Brandywine Creek, Very peaceful and quiet with lots of vegetation to look at in spring, summer and fall, and lovely views in the winter.

This is a nice place to walk dogs, bike ride, or just take a stroll. Also a good place to bird watch.

Love this trail. You can bike or walk all the way from Downingtown to Marsh Creek area. Nice and flat and for most of the trail, follows the gurgling Brandywine Creek.

There's a small parking lot at the Dorlan Mill end of the trail. There are also lots along the trail - one on Shelmire, I believe. Or you can park at Kerr park, walk through the ponds and access the Norwood Rd end of the... More
