Located in Kennett Township, the Parrish Trail follows the West Branch of the Red Clay Creek from Pennock Park south, currently ending off Chandler Mill Road just south of its intersection with Hillendale Road. It has a crushed-stone surface and crosses a wooded area and farm fields, passing a mushroom growing facility near its halfway point.
Although only a mile and a half long, the Parrish Trail is one segment of a larger project, the Kennett Greenway, a planned 10-mile loop trail through Kennett township. and the borough of Kennett Square. In addition to being a valuable local asset, this trail will provide connections to other nearby greenway networks in northern Delaware, the Philadelphia area (the Circuit) and the Brandywine Greenway.
Trailheads and parking are located in Pennock Park (675 W South St, Kennett Square) and off Hillendale Road.
