    6 00 a m The trail is marked with white blazes see below and hikers follow the route at their own pace with the aid of a printed trail guide Refreshments are provided at the three rest stops checkpoints at 13 23 and 29 miles For those unable to complete the hike a shuttle service is available at the checkpoints and will return them to Brandywine Creek State Park Our participants generally expect to reach at least the 23 mile mark and most people finish the hike Please note Although the terrain is not difficult this is a serious long distance hike and requires adequate preparation Participants must be experienced hikers comfortable with distances of at least 15 miles Interpreting blazes Single blazes indicate that the trail goes straight ahead but double blazes indicate a turn as shown below Thanks to these sponsors from recent years Gore Outdoor Recreational Equipment Inc REI and Trail Creek Outfitters for helping to pay for the t shirts Eastern Mountain Sports for providing the cookout at the final checkpoint Brandywine Picnic Park at Lenape for allowing us to use their facilities free of charge History of the Brandywine Trail The Wilmington Trail Club began planning the Trail in 1941 shortly after the club was founded Starting at Henry Clay on the Brandywine River just south of the Hagley Museum it was planned to follow the river valley north towards the Horseshoe Trail which in its turn connects with the Appalachian Trail north of Harrisburg Permission was obtained from landowners including four members of the du Pont family and H G Haskell owner of Hill Girt Farm Chadds Ford Work commenced in 1942 and by 1948 the HT was reached near Bacton PA a distance of 28 miles During the 1970s the Chester County Trail Club took over maintenance of the trail north of Chadds Ford and the upper section was rerouted to join the HT at Horseshoe Trail Road near Ludwig s Corner PA making a total distance of approximately 36 miles In recent years due to development at Rockland access to the southernmost section has been lost and the trail now crosses Rockland Bridge to terminate in Brandywine Creek State Park on the west bank of the creek The trail is intended for exclusive use of members of the two maintaining clubs and their guests The main use of the trail occurs in the late winter and early spring when preparatory warm up hikes are held for the annual End to End hike in one day Early End to End hikes were informal affairs with the hikers using their own vehicles for car pooling and carrying their own supplies Around 1960 a few members decided to wait at the end with coffee and doughnuts for the hikers and began the practice of recording finishing times Since then the hike has evolved to its present day format with bus shuttle trail guides refreshment checkpoints and sweeps In past years hikers clambering over the rocks
