DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
Join me for a brisk hike. If you are up for a very hilly hike at a 3-mile pace, then this hike is for you. If you are not going up steep hills then you will be going down steep hills, but rarely will you find yourself on a flat surface, until the last 4 miles. Trails include woods and fields, steep hills, mostly shade and beautiful views of the Brandywine. Can be muddy in spots. Bring water, lunch and bug spray. Restroom available at start.
