  • 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...  more »

  • 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...  more »
  • Took a 5 mile hike on white trail on Wednesday afternoon in mid June. This park is very peaceful despite its urbanesk like setting. Walking in the park is very peaceful and it provides a number of forest habitats. The constant sounds of birds chirping or squirrels and chipmunks crunching forest floor debris or the sounds from water flowing in Ridley creek are quite soothing to the ears. The plush greenery surrounded by a stand of hardwoods that are quite mature gives one the effect of being in a different's amazing! I enjoyed my hike.
  • We really enjoyed this park. We hiked part of the White, Blue, and Yellow trails and they were all well-marked narrow dirt trails. Variation in the trails kept it interesting with parts along the creek and several decent hills. There is also a wide paved trail for bikers, strollers, etc.
  • A fine Pennsylvania state park in a populated suburb of Philadelphia. With good group picnic areas with pavilions, a four mile paved multi-use loop trail, nice well marked hiking trails through mature hardwood forests, trout fishing in the creek, and a stable with a bridle trail, this park has a lot to offer. I have enjoyed hiking the white blazed trail with my dogs, birdwatching, and fly-fishing for trout here for over 30 years. The parking area off Bishop Hollow road often gets over-crowded on sunny days, so park at one of the picnic areas. And inspect yourself and the kids for ticks after any visit to the woods during warmer months.
  • Perfect Family Picnic Spot ! I am so pleased with the greens and woods. There is a proper upkeep and you can barbecue. Kids love it. Perfect for wedding and other photo-shoots. Above all, relax, read a book, mediate, play or doze off in the lap of nature !
  • Great park, perfect summer time getaway from the crowds and hustle and bustles of life. Go clear your head here. Leave the cellphones and the worries of life to actually enjoy this park.
