Struble Trail is great! It is easy to park and just hop on the paved walking trail. It is never too crowded and people are polite, whether they are walking or riding bikes. It's fun to go off the path sometimes, too, to check out the creek, a small trail, etc. Dogs are allowed but must be on a leash,... More

Fortunately we live within a short drive of the Struble Trail. If you love walking, running, biking in a beautiful place, this is for you. The trail meanders along the Brandywine Creek and provides great scenery that is enjoyable in all seasons. Give it a try, you'll be hooked!

This used to be my favorite walk. It's well paved and scenic but you need to keep your dog on a leash and mine prefers to run wild so I reserve this walk when there is no dog involved otherwise I take the dog to Marsh Creek.

The Struble trail is around 6 miles round trip so long enough for a challenging run or recreational bike ride. Scenic views along the Brandywine Creek make it a good spot year round but particularly in Fall. Good access for fishing as well.

This is a very nice little trail in D'Town, scenic, along the Brandywine Creek, safe, fairly high useage. Good for walking, jogging, but not for biking as too crowded and too short.
