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.

The 5-mile multi-purpose (paved) trail is my favorite place to roam. It follows the creek and is a nice safe place for a woman alone like me who liked to hike, but isn't up to woodsy trails much anymore. The Colonial Plantation is a lot...More

Really nice park to hike through. My only complaint is that they could mark the trails better. There was one part of the hike where we couldn't quite figure out how to get back to the beginning, but besides that, we enjoyed the hike.

I love this park. It's beautiful and peaceful. It's great for walking your dog(s). The only con is the parking so I try to get there early!

You would have to go to Hidden Valley Farms, go to website visitpa . com / pa-horseback-riding / ridley-creek-state-park (remove all the spaces) and call (610) 892-7260 for more info.

I think they have horseback riding and the name of the facility is Hidden Valley Farm within Ridley Creek State Park. I believe you can rent horses. If you look up Hidden Valley Farm Ridley Creek SP you'll probably find it.
