White Clay Creek State Park and Preserve (PA): Charles Bailey Trail
This map is for an out-and-back trip along White Clay Creek (mapmyhike.com).
Elevation gain is very minimal. There are only a few small hills. Most of the trail is quite flat (mapmyhike.com).
You can park your car at the Park Office / David English Trailhead parking lot on Thompson Station Road.
At the parking lot, there is a nice meeting area that would be good for a group to gather.
Head north on the David English Trail.
Even though you are on the David English Trail for a short distance, you should watch out for bikes. This trail allows mountain bikes, and they go fast.
Follow the David English Trail north, and then turn off onto the Charles Bailey Trail.
Cross Thompson Station Road.
The forest is quiet and inviting. Most of the trail is narrow, as shown in this photo.
This trail follows White Clay Creek upstream.

The forest is quiet. There are no road noises here.
