Took my dog here for the first time. Lots of activity here for sure. We met 3 dogs along our walk and he decided to check out the water as well. Good short trail.

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.

I walk this trail several times a week and love taking company here. It is a well-maintained, level trail with occasional security patrol-ers on bike or afoot. They did a beautiful job renovating the parking lot at Dorlan Mills. It is a beautiful, peaceful place...More

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.

Struble Trail in Downingtown is a classic. Paved in its entirety, it's easy to ride a bicycle on, push a stroller, walk or yog. It's definitely not smooth enough to rollerblade, however. Shady in spots and sunny in others, during a fall afternoon or morning,...More
