A great place to exercise whether someone is walking, jogging, running, or biking. There are many trails to explore and the long trails can go for 5 miles or more. It's one place to go get the mindset off the workplace.

Great place to hike locally. Several different blazed trails are available that all intersect allowing you to hike different parts of the park fairly easily. Lots of ups and downs on the blazed trails. The park also has a paved, 4 mile, multi-purpose loop trail, good for walkers, joggers, and bikers. Good place to do some fishing in the spring.... More

There are several sections of the park and my favorite is the 5 mile loop. I use it when training for the Broad Street Run or just for exercise. There are many trails where people walk in the woods.

I have been walking int RCSP for most of my life. From wooded trails some along the stream, to the several mile paved loop - this is a poplar place to walk in good weather. On a good weather day, sunny, not too hot, not too cold it can be hard to find a place to park, but there are... More

I love riding to Ridley creek State Park. The 5 mile loop is a beautiful ride or walk along the creek that is stunning in each season. Whether it is a winter stroll or a bike ride the peaceful solitude of the loop is unmatched. Great place for a walk as the loop offers challenging hills and good workout for... More

A gorgeous and well maintained state park with abundant trails for walkers/hikers of all abilities. The multi purpose loop offers exceptional creekside views for walkers and bikers.

Took a long walk through the wooded area which led to a blacktop path for walking. It was just beautiful with the leaves in full color, extra pretty with the stream. We also checked out the mansion on the property. That was cool , perfect place for pictures with the stone walls. If you park down near the dam ,... More

I go to different areas of the creek but our favorite is near the horses. We love it here. We even came to a 3 year old picinic birthday party.

My wife and I walk every morning on the paved road (no cars) beside Ridley Creek. It is beautiful in all seasons. Because the trail is paved, it is good for walkers, runners, bikers, little kids on bikes, and dog walkers. We fall in the last category. Our Husky and Golden love the park and the friends they meet daily.... More
