Hike Creek Road Trail Loop

Delaware Creek Road Trail, Brandywine Creek

Added by The Outbound Collective

A scenic walk along the Brandywine, with side trails to vary your hike in Brandywine Creek State Park.

A lovely but flat straight shot along the Brandywine Creek, Creek Road Trail is not, on its own, the most exciting terrain, but it does have a number of more challenging side trails to choose from. Rocky Run Trail is a popular uphill offshoot.

You can also bike this scenic path.

Always More to Explore

The Brandywine Valley, in general, is enormous. I love spending much of my leisure time just getting lost out in the Valley and finding lovely, hidden little spots for moments of peaceful quiet or for some photography. Creek Rd is one of my favorite roads, and there are many spots along the entire Brandywine that are highly photogenic! I have hiked some of the "marked" paths in the areas immediately surrounding this particular little bit of land, though I have spent more time off the trail than on, stumbling upon expansive cornfields and breathtaking early-morning vistas of the fog-laden hills. The Blue Ridge Mountains it is not, and most of the year much of the valley is, overall, not extraordinarily remarkable; nevertheless, it's a stone's throw from home and easily accessible (there are a number of areas to park for free, and little pull-off sections along most roads to stop and admire the nature). I always manage to find new things to photograph! (Just this morning, not that far from Creek Road, I stumbled upon a small stream on the edge of some private property that was laden with primroses, and one of the owner's employees, I think he was, gave me permission to walk around the area and photograph to my little heart's content!)
