Hike @ Cheslen Preserve
February 20, 2020 –
This NLT preserve has 1,282 acres of woods, hills, farm fields, streams, wetlands and native grasses. We will hike some of the 13 miles of trails in this varied terrain. Bring water and snacks.
DIRECTIONS: Take the Route 30 Bypass west to Route 340. Take Route 340 East. At Business Route 30, continue straight onto Marshallton-Thorndale Rd. Drive to Route 162 (fairly soon after Highland Orchards on right). Turn right onto 162 West. After passing Embreeville Mill and crossing the Brandywine Creek, slow down and then turn left up the hill onto Cannery Rd (no light). It’s less than 0.5 miles to the Preserve entrance on the right. Meet at the Lenfest Center. There are restrooms at the Center.
