Struble Trail


Struble Trail is a multi-use rail trail located in Chester County, Pennsylvania.

It has 3 miles (4.8 km) currently open and 15.53 miles (24.99 km) of proposed trails. The majority of the trail is a paved surface. The trail is open to most human forms of transportation including, walking, running, biking, skateboarding, and roller skating. The Trail is closed to motor vehicles and horses. The trail is also closed between dusk and dawn.

The Struble Trail was named for the late County Commissioner (1976-1980) and longtime Executive Director of the Brandywine Valley Association, teacher and conservationist Robert G. Struble.

The trail head is located on Dorlan's Mill Road, just north of the Downingtown Borough on Pennsylvania Route 282.

The Struble Trail is maintained by the Chester County Parks Department. In August 2008, 23 acres (9.3 ha) of land was purchased from the Shryock Paper Mill after a highly publicized grass roots effort to preserve the property. Safe, continuous passage from the Struble Trail to the approximately 6 miles (9.7 km) of hiking trails within Marsh Creek State Park is now possible.

Along the trail there are several historical sites, fishing, and picnicking.
