Tyler Arboretum > tylerarboretum.org
If Media is “Everybody’s Hometown,” then Tyler Arboretum is “Everybody’s Backyard.” Whether it’s their annual Pumpkin Days in October or February’s Pancake Breakfast and Maple Sugaring Celebration, Tyler is a great place to have a little fun outside. With 650 acres and 17 miles of hiking trails to explore (including an ADA-compliant Scenic Loop), it’s an autumn masterpiece and winter wonderland rolled into one.

“This crowd has gone deadly silent. It’s a Cinderella story outta
nowhere. Former greens keeper and now about to become the masters champion....” While you may not see Carl Spackler (a.k.a. Bill Murray) lining up a tee shot at Clayton Park Golf Course

HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU
Somehow, we don’t think the trails that Dale Evans and Roy Rogers rode on looked much like the ones scattered throughout Delco. And we also don’t think they were singing about mountain-bikers, runners, inline skaters or parents pushing strollers. But there was one thing they were right about — trails DO make us happy.
Beaver Valley
> Chadds Ford & Concord Townships Nestled between First State National
Historical Park in Delaware and the more developed section of Chadds Ford is what the locals affectionately call “The Valley” — an extensive trail system through beautiful land open to hikers, dog-walkers, runners and bicycle and horseback riders.
Harvey Run Trail > Chadds Ford The newest trail on the scene
(est. April 2017), the 2.5-mile natural- surface trail begins near the Chadds Ford municipal building, travels onto Brandywine Conservancy land and connects with the existing foot trail along Brandywine Creek.
