Brandywine Trail Description

The Brandywine Trail follows the course of its namesake creek through over two miles of Brandywine Creek State Park, emerging at the northern end at the entrance to the Brandywine Valley area of First State National Historical Park, featuring popular open spaces and hiking trails.

The majority of the Brandywine Trail has a crushed stone surface, although several sections are paved. In addition to lovely views of the water, trail users should keep their eyes out for numerous wildflowers, warblers, white-tailed deer and other wildlife along the shaded path.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available with the state park entrance fee at the southern end of the trail at the Rockland Falls Road trailhead and along the trail at the Thompsons Bridge Road trailhead. Additional free parking is available at the small lot operated by the First State National Historical Park located just east of the northern end of the trail on Ramsey Road.

To reach the southern end of the trail from US Route 202, take US 202 towards Talleyville and turn to head southwest on Mount Lebanon Road. Continue until the road ends at Rockland Road and turn right, then take the next right to access the parking lot and trailhead. The main park entrance can be found by continuing further west on Rockland Road.
