Struble Trail, with 2.6 miles currently open, follows the East Branch of the Brandywine Creek as it flows towards Downingtown. Sitting on the original rail bed of the Waynesburg Rail Line, the trail is generally flat, and although some undulations occur, the terrain is considered low in user difficulty. The trail has a ‘hike-bike-jog’ appeal, with a winter element of cross-country skiing when conditions allow. Its surface is great for riding bicycles, running, hiking and walking.
