DNREC's Division of Parks & Recreation is in the process of updating the Brandywine Creek State Park Trail Plan. The purpose of the trail plan is to provide a vision and a framework for the future trail system of Brandywine Creek State Park.  The Division expects to release the final trail plan by the end of 2019.  In summary, the plan outlines 1.6 miles of additional trails. Currently, the park has 16.6 miles of trails. The most notable changes are on the west side of the Brandywine Creek, with 4 miles of additional trail.

In developing the trail plan for Brandywine Creek State Park, DNREC's Division of Parks and Recreation established objectives, evaluated natural and cultural resources, assessed current trail conditions, and weighed constraints and opportunities.

Public participation was a core component in developing this plan. A stakeholder working group, representative of trail and park user groups, was assembled to participate in open discussions regarding the trail plan. Thanks to all the folks on the working group who participated in learning about the park’s natural and cultural assets and recreational trail uses, learning about the Division’s evaluation and planning process, and engaging in discussions that led to changes in the trail plan.  The working group provided key input for current and future alignments, surfaces, and uses represented in this plan.  The working group discussions were the foundation of the trail plan update and were shared at the October 28, 2015 public open house. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback at the open house and/or submitted a comment form.
