The Chester Creek Trail is a rail-trail in central Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Southeastern Pennsylvania.  The trail follows Chester Creek along the Civil War-era Chester Creek Branch line of the Pennsylvania Railroad.

When complete, the trail will run from the former SEPTA Wawa R3 station to Upland, PA. The middle section of the trail, consisting of 2.8 miles through Middletown and Aston townships, was completed in early 2017.   As of  2019, an extension to Bridgewater Road to the south is in the engineering design phase, and an extension to the Wawa Train Station to the north is also in progress.

The Chester Creek Trail provides many benefits to Delaware County residents.  It preserves valuable green space along the Chester Creek, while allowing easy access to beautiful streamside views. The trail will soon connect to other trail networks and SEPTA regional rail, providing a viable alternative to auto commuting, linking multiple land uses, employment areas, and mass transit.  The trail is already heavily used for recreation and exercise, including  bicycling, walking, running, (occasional) cross country skiing and fishing access to the Chester Creek.  

Thanks to donors like you, we've been able to install trail improvements such as benches, landscaping, a bike repair station, and trash and dog waste facilities.  Additional amenities will be installed on new and existing sections of the trail with your support.

Your help is needed to complete and maintain this trail!
