New Trails

Pointe Bypass Trail

A new trail opened up this winter, that connects  Brandywine Park (the one next to the zoo and Monkey Hill) to the trails around the old Bancroft Mills.  It’s now possible to start on the Brandywine at Market Street Bridge and walk all the way to the renovated Blue Ball Barn on the Concord Pike. It’s well worth the time. The new trail climbs the banks of the Brandywine to bypass the hoity-toity Pointe Condominiums. That’s them in the background of the picture.

The trail passes by the old Bancroft Mills, and the old Blue Rock quarry. This was my destination for this particular hike.
