  • Macy's Springfield Mall

10 miles.  If using public transportation, take SEPTA 101 trolley from 69th Street to Springfield Mall stop and meet leader here at 9:25 AM (25 miles to trailhead). If driving, meet at 9:30 AM in front of Macy's at Springfield Mall and park under trees next to Baltimore Pike. GPS coordinates are 39.834133,-75.575542 for those wishing to meet the group at the trailhead.  To get to the trailhead if you don't use GPS coordinates, find the intersection of Routes 1 and 202 on a map. Smithbridge Road crosses Rte. 202 just a short distance east of Rte. 1. Go south on Smithbridge Road toward Delaware. Turn left just before the covered bridge onto Brandywine Creek Road. Just past where Beaver Dam Road comes in on your left, you will see a parking lot on your right between the road and the creek. Park at the further end, where it's shadier in the afternoon.  I expect to arrive at the trailhead around 10:15. The hike will start by 10:30. We'll cover well-shaded trails through varied terrain, on both sides of the Brandywine Creek and along Rocky Run, as we make a series of loops through this beautiful park.  Hiking boots recommended. Bring lunch and water. Cost: $1.00. Leader: Abbie Wysor, 610-742-5967, abbiewysor@gmail.com.
