If you have been hankering for a very hilly 7mile hike at a moderate to fast pace on a Friday to start your weekend, then this hike is for you.

Trails include woods and fields, steep hills, mostly shade and views of the Brandywine. Can be muddy in spots. Finish about 12:45. Bring water, snack and bug spray.
