One Sunday afternoon I headed to Springton Manor Farm Park in Chester County, PA, for a ramble along its trails. I had no great expectations for the working farm park, and so there wasn’t a bit of disappointment. Aside, that is, that I didn’t allow enough time to fully explore the park. My hiking was restricted to a short loop near the pond and the hillside with the overlook. I missed the viewing platform atop the hill, but even without the additional elevation my photos were impressive. I hiked two miles that afternoon, and in both woods and open field enjoyed every inch. Next time I’ll arrive earlier in the day and explore along the creek running at the foot of the land in addition to heading up the hill.
