Hike the White Trail in Ridley Creek State Park

Pennsylvania / Ridley Creek State Park - Pavilion #9

The white trail is the only true loop hike in the park. Strangely enough, it has no official trailhead. You can gain access to the trail from either Pavilion/picnic are #9 or Pavilion/picnic area #16.
