A nice, paved path that is well maintained. It's mostly flat, with a few small hills and turns that help make it interesting. Lots of joggers, bikers, and families can be found all along the way. Several of the mountain biking/hiking trails can be accessed from the path.
Mostly straight, it parallels a portion of the Brandywine Creek and follows the old trolley path that led from Downingtown to West Chester. The parking lot nearest Downingtown is the easiest place to access the trail, although some parking can be found along the shoulder on the far end.
