Cheslyn Preserve, Chester County, PA

While visiting my family in PA last week, my sisters and I walked on the trails of the Cheslyn Preserve.

The preserve is one of the largest private preserves in SE PA which features agricultural fields (hay and soybeans), and wooded stream corridors.  It is also designated as an important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society.  There is approximately 12 miles of unpaved trails ranging from easy to moderate which are available for walking and hiking.

There are horseback riding trails in designated areas too!  Canoeing and kayaking is also permitted on the preserve.

It was a beautiful day for our hike with weather just perfect.  Next time I go, I want to take binoculars to for some bird watching!

We saw tons of bittersweet on our walk.  I love using it around my home during the the Fall season.

Do you like to hike?  Do you have preserves where you live?


  1. Glad you had this time with your sisters. I love the bittersweet. We have a preserve here but I am fairly new to the area and have not visited yet. I'll have to remember to take the binoculars.

  2. A beautiful spot and wonderful to be there with your sisters.

    We had a family reunion weekend and it was wonderful to walk along the beach with my cousins and aunt - my sister flaked on us all.

  3. It looks like a beautiful place to hike & spend some time outdoors! Glad you got to enjoy with your sister!

  4. I love to hike.
    I love the photos of you and your sisters. :-)
    I also love bittersweet.
    Have a blessed week,

  5. So fun to spend time with your cute sisters Kelly. I do love to hike! I love bittersweet, but it doesn't grow around here. I have to use prickly Pyracantha as a substitute. lol!

  6. Oh honey it's been years since this body has seen a hiking trail. But honestly, I'd love it. Been thinking about it lately. What a fun time with sisters. I love my sister!

  7. Those of the best days, hiking and visiting with sisters.Beautiful autumnal scenery too. I love to hike and am always up for one.
