Stroud Preserve consists of 571 acres of culturally and ecologically important land in Chester County. This rolling mosaic of once-pastured grasslands, working farmlands, and woodlands now serves as wildlife habitat and a unique site for research.
The entrance to this trail can be found along Creek Road where there is a small parking area and an information kiosk with information about the other trails available on the preserve.
This trail takes you over a small stone bridge and through the preserve through wetlands and forest. It is well maintained with beautiful views of the area.
