Description

The Purple Loop is a short and easy loop from the parking lot, to the woods, along the Brandywine Creek and then back to the parking lot. This is an excellent short trail for taking dogs out on, or going for a short jaunt through nature. There are some good views of the creek and farmland.

Flora & Fauna

The woodlands along the trail are dominated by red oak, tuliptree, beech, and maple trees.
