Northern Struble Trail

Struble Trail
One of the most popular rail trails in Chester County, the Struble Trail attracts over 100,000 users every year. This three-mile paved multi-use trail follows the Brandywine Creek from Downingtown north to Dorlan Mill Road and is owned and operated by Chester County Parks and Facilities.

During 2014-2015, Chester County and the Brandywine Conservancy studied the feasibility of extending the trail north to Honey Brook Borough, following the route of the abandoned rail right of way. The purpose of the Northern Struble Trail Feasibility Study was to determine a viable corridor for a potential 13.5 mile extension of the existing Struble Trail. The planned multi-use and equestrian trail would be operated, maintained, and policed by the Chester County Facilities and Parks Department in partnership with municipalities through which the trail extends.

A final report with specific recommendations is now available for public review. County representatives are currently working to assemble outstanding access rights before design/engineering can begin on the first extension between Dorlan Mill Road and Lyndell Road.
