Good for trail running, hiking, and nordic skiing (when we actually get enough snow!) The multi-use path is a 4.5 mile loop with some hills, and is the only part of the park (excluding paved parking areas and access roads) that bicycles are allowed to...More

This park is truly a gem, gift from God! After 30+ years of running and walking the park in the trails it never gets old. Delco is lucky to have this little jewel

There are different plots where you can reserve picnic tables. Went to a birthday party and a SCA event.

Went with friends for a walk here. The park has many trails, both on paved roads as well as marked trails through the woods. It's a beautiful park with a steam running through it and a choice of long or short walks/runs. Great for families...More

This is a beautiful park just outside Media. There are nice walking trails, just rolling hills and grassland.

Beautiful park with a mix of paved trails and hiking trails. The house on the property is beautiful and there are horses. Good variety of things to do. Worth the trip!

You would have to go to Hidden Valley Farms, go to website visitpa . com / pa-horseback-riding / ridley-creek-state-park (remove all the spaces) and call (610) 892-7260 for more info.

I think they have horseback riding and the name of the facility is Hidden Valley Farm within Ridley Creek State Park. I believe you can rent horses. If you look up Hidden Valley Farm Ridley Creek SP you'll probably find it.
