Brandywine state park - Trail, Wilmington, Delaware

Brandywine state park - Trail, Wilmington, Delaware

DESCRIPTION

This is a descent trial it has two major downhills and a bunch of single track. This trail is also a good one becuase there is a whole bunch of side trials that wind (yinde i mean sure how to spell it) around a lot so you could take the whole day doing all the trails or just 10 minutes doing the main trail. Hope you like it:)

This trail is great. Reviews on other websites don't scratch the surface, this park has so much to offer. I started riding here when i moved this summer and was amazed by the fun and technical downhills. I was used to riding in Illinois and we obviously lacked hills so this is a nice change. My friends and i ride either here or Middle Run after school and in my opinion these are the best trails near by Philly and Wilmington. If you search you can fin some great downhills and rock gardens.

follow an old farm trial by one of the parking lots in Woodland Trustee area. Its a tough climb but once at the top there are many fast downhills and enjoyable wooded trails.

Very basic unless you are willing to explore. Better trails closer to Smith bridge. These trails are easily reached by following main trail.

Was just informed by the park police yesterday 7/8/09 that all trails west of the creek are off limits to bikes. I was stopped by a park police suburban quickly pulling on to the shoulder of thompsons bridge rd to cut me off before I got on to a trail. They pointed to a "no bikes" sign a few feet beyond me, which I had never seen in my previous 15 years of riding there.

Anyway, just so you know, they say everything on the side opposite of the greenway is off limits to bikes. And watch out for the cops in the green and white suburban, they will nearly run you over to let you know.

Brandywine Creek and Woodlawn trails kick ass. Back in the mid-90's the lower parking lot was packed after work. We rode 7 days a week. I have ridden Utah, Colorado, California, and always dream of riding Brandywine. Is the G2 still ridable? Done it. Hardest hill I ever rode. I have moved to Richmond VA but still ride once a year.

Trail system behind JCC - follow to the right and below TGIF - follow down towards the bottom and take ridge trail to higher ground. Follow loop and exit onto roller coaster hill. Pick up field trail to river and follow route towards dairy. Can't beat it baby.

Fun! Did about 18 miles here today. Good amount of climbing, but more of the gradual grinding type than steep, nasty hills. Plenty of technical logs and rocks in some places, smooth, fast singletrack in others. Overall a great ride.

Customer Service

I started from behind the TGI Fridays off Route 202, after that I was just following the leader. No clue really.

well this trail doestn start right were the Branywine Starts, but its eventually gets too the state park.

Customer Service

If you know of the road 202, follow it untill you see a T.G.I Fridays, John Harveds, Red LObster and Lone Star. Turn into the resturants. Go to the upper back left corner of the parking lot, behind the resturants. There will be a trail header with a couple signs. There is only one start. Go down it and you will come upon a hill. Take a right and go down for a short whiles untill you see another trail to your right. Take this all the way and you will end up in a little field with a road infront of you, make a 180 degree turn in about 10 feet off the trail and you will se another trail. This is a wonderful single track. Follow that and you will come up to another field , jsut follow the same trail your on and dont take any other routs. After a little whiles after that you will come upon the Green WAY trail in the Brandywine state park, right on the bridge on the left side of the park, where rocky run ends up.

This is the best set of trails in the area with a riverside sleeper and rocky technical descents a few major league vistas thrown in. You can ride wide open and easy flats, but the trails coming up out of the valey are 300-400 vertical and major logs, rocks and roots. Several good water crossings, deer and some awesome descents really mix it up. Some guys get stuck onthe mixed use trails near the horse farms which are mulched and Stinky#^$%$&$ but get a local or a map and get on the rocky hill near the JCC and you can have some wicked techincal challenges. Overall a great mix of trails for every level.

Overall, it is a decent group of trails, but you have to explore the off-shoots to find something more technical. Several steady uphills and long rocky downhill sections. Just beware for the clean freaks, the trails don't dry out very quickly after it rains, so if you are afraid of a lot of mud ( and I mean like 1/2" thick coats of mud) stay away from the River trails.

Customer Service

From Thompson Rd, make a left into parking lot just before the bridge over the brandywine river. Follow the main gravel walk/bike path to the first foot bridge and make a right just over the bridge onto the singletrack. Then...enjoy the mud!

There are probably 10 miles of decent, technical trails in the Park open to bikes; a lot of other trails are closed to bikes. Heading north, the park adjoins Woodlawn Nature Preserve, which has roughly 15 miles of trails open to bikes. The Nature Preserve has some boring double track trails and some great single track trails. The single track trails are not rocky; lots of good climbs and fast, twisting downhills.

Customer Service

Park behind the Olive Tree restaurant on Route 202 and head into the woods. The trails going south from there are technical, the trails going north head into Woodlawn Nature Preserve which goes into Pennsylvania.

when you come out to the BCSP Parking lot by Thompsons bridge, cross the road and go about a mile and a half down the trail. there is a climb to your right we call the G2. Bet you can't make it all the way up.......
and if you are one who can, lets go riding.... soon......

Customer Service

Park behind the TGIFriday's and head back into the woods on any trail you see (socktrail to rocky run)

report all motorized vehicles (4wheelers and such) on the trails to the security guys in the parking lots. they are working to restrict OUR TRAIL USE through misuse. oh, and get off your bike when the horses are coming, the trails are mostly woodlawn and horses come first in their policy. Have a great ride.
