The crushed stone path includes interpretive signage.

Browns Run Trail Reviews

My husband & I walked this trail today for the first time. We were really impressed with how well cared for this trail is. We will definitely use this as one of our "go to" trails when we are looking to get a couple of miles in.

This trail is entirely flat at this point. The trail also offers seating if you require a break. It has disposals for your 'doggie bags'. It also has a garbage can half way through for your convenience. It is quiet with several bridges and lots of wildlife. Perfect for taking your children with bikes and packing a small lunch for your break!

This 1 mile trail is absolutely worth visiting. My husband and I walk this trail often with our 2 boys and our 2 dogs. There is a stream that follows the trail and crosses under it in a few spots. Another path, waterfall path, goes away from the trail down to a spot in the stream where there is a peaceful waterfall. It's a beautiful place for a picnic. There is also an abundance of wildlife all around this trail that we see everytime we go. If you enjoy being outdoors, nature and animals this trail is worth a visit.
