Leiper-Smedley Trail Description

This trail connects the historic Thomas Leiper House (built in 1785) to Smedley Park, hence its name. The 2-mile multipurpose trail is mostly shaded as it winds through the Crum Creek Valley and zigs and zags across Blue Route (I-476) albeit via overpass. Users, wheeled or otherwise are welcome, so long as they use non-motorized means. There is one on-road crossing at Baltimore Pike so exercise caution.

Parking and Trail Access

You can park at either end of the trail at Smedley Park (20 Papermill Rd, Wallingford) or Leiper Historic House (521 Avondale Rd).
