The Darby Creek Trail winds along a wooded creek through the western neighborhoods of Haverford Township, just outside of Philadelphia. The trail's southern end is anchored by Merry Place, a playground and nature area nestled within Glendale Park.
The paved mile-long trail is part of a massive effort in the Philadelphia region to create a 750-mile network of interconnected trails called The Circuit.
Parking is available at the trail's southern end in Merry Place (600 Glendale Road); the playground and nature area are part of Glendale Park.
While the trail runs through a wooded area along the Darby Creek the scenery is mostly unimpressive and even the sounds of the creek cannot drown out the traffic noise.
Nice spot to run along the water. Could use some TLC as far as landscaping and clean up.
Trail runs along Darby Creek, beautiful, peaceful, safe trail.
The trail here is all paved and runs adjacent to a bubbling Creek. It's good for a stroll, particularly with a stroller or dog. The nearby Merry Place playground is well maintained and great for small kids.
