We recently received information from the DuPont family at Granogue. Like all the local and national trails, they were overrun with visitors this year. Hiking through Granogue may only be done with prior approval from the estate. Granogue is a private estate and WTC members must adhere to the wishes of the property owners to protect WTC sanctioned hikes.
Bill Hardam reached out to the families that own the land along the Brandywine Trial between Smith’s Bridge and Pyle’s Twin Bridge to begin scheduled hikes again. They are seeing too much trespassing on their land and denied our request. WTC members must adhere to the wishes of all property owners and not trespass. We use and need this section for our ETE and need to maintain a healthy relationship with our neighbors.
