Get outside and enjoy the snow!

With winter weather and snow finally arriving in our area, it's time to get outside for some fun and exercise.

Whether you want to go cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or sledding with your kids, there are some great locations available within just a few miles of Kennett Square. The Land Conservancy of Southern Chester County has several preserves that are perfect for getting out to enjoy the winter weather.

Stateline Woods preserve, three miles outside of Kennett Square on Old Kennett Pike, offers four miles of trails that are perfect for cross-country skiing and will be groomed when there are at least four inches of snow. The open fields and rolling hills at Stateline are also great for sledding.  

Or you can go four miles out of Kennett Square towards Yorklyn, Del., to Marshall Bridge preserve for three miles of gentle trails along the scenic Red Clay Creek.  And the Marshall Mill House on Creek road offers 1.5 miles of wooded trails over moderate terrain.  See detailed information at

Get out and make some memories before it all melts!
