    Great place!

    There are different styles of trails (wooded, meadows, fields, gravel, dirt). Brandywine creek runs through the preserve. It can be crowded at times and the parking lot can fill up. There tends to be a number of dogs there and you may also come across some horseback riders on some trails.
