Have lived in Delco over 25 years and just discovered the hiking trails. Beautiful trails. Great for a nice hike. Trail Maps could be better but trails are pretty well marked. We spent about 1.5 hours on the yellow trail. Will definitely return.

Bike, hike, walk, or even just relax at one of the "lots" and have a cook out. It is a beautiful park with trails, playgrounds, gills and horses if you want to try your hand at that! Really great photo ops at the mansion too.

Have been hiking Ridley Creek State Park since 1970. Large number of trails to hike from beginner to advanced. Choice of paved or rugged trails. Plenty of parking and no crowds(Except on the paved running trail) Also spend time checking out the mansion and gardens...worth the visit.

I've been doing some walks here lately and it's just r-e-l-a-x-i-n-g! What a nice calm place to walk around in! One of the paths is also good for family walks with babies as its asphalted.

Beautiful park with both paved and I paved trails for walking and biking. Well used by runners and nature lovers alike. We go with the kids often. Can be a little tough on very little legs but nice spots to stop and skip stones. On warm days there is a dock you can use to get into the water. Bring... More

A great state park located in Delaware Co. PA (just outside Media PA) many many acres of both wooded and open space with several picnic areas (reservations are recommended). Also includes a 4 mile circular biking, jogging and strolling paved path. Miles of wooded paths for the hiker and bird watcher. Finally, there is Ridley Creek for the Fly Fisherperson... More

The park has a 4 mile loop that's great for walking, cycling or running (it's a little hilly). You can do part of the loop or all of it. There are additional off road trails for hiking. Love this place!

You can fell like you in the middle of nowhere even being so close to the city. Plenty of things you can do here from hiking, playgrounds, horseback riding, running and like my wife and I you can even get married here. The mansion and its grounds are beautiful and great to explore. Always will have people taking family photos... More

have gone to this park for years. A very nice paved trail for people to walk and ride their bikes. I particularly love the trail by the creek. Beautiful in the fall. There are also many marked trails that go in and out of the paved trail. Fisherman can be spotted in the creek. A great way to spend a... More
