Part of the Reading metropolitan area's extensive trail system, the Angelica Creek Trail branches off the Thun Trail just southeast of the Brentwood Trailhead, passes under railroad trestles across the Schuylkill, then meanders southwest past Alvernia University and through suburbs before ending at the KenGrill Recreation Center. For most of its length, the trail parallels the creek for which it is named, and much of the environment is wooded. The section in Angelica Park, where a former lake that drained after a dam once located near Route 10 (which the trail passes under) was breeched in a flood has since reverted to wetlands, is particularly impressive. One big difference between this trail and the Wyomissing Creek Trail, which branches from the Thun Trail further northwest, is paved with asphalt and level for most its length, is that the Angelica Creek Trail's surface alternates between dirt, gravel and/or coarse stone on several sections, asphalt in Angelica Park and sidewalk-like concrete on a couple of steep slopes. The gravel/stone sections can get muddy after rainy weather and the asphalt portion is degrading and, like the Neversink Connector Trail, is in bad need of repairs. Due to these conditions, along with the aforementioned slopes, the Angelica Creek Trail is poorly suited for cycling or parents pushing baby strollers, but is fine for hikers, joggers and other foot traffic. Hopefully, the surface will be improved in the near future and the trail will eventually be extended further southwest toward Governor Mifflin Intermediate and Cumru Middle schools, Shillington Memorial Park and/or the Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center.
