If you only get outdoors during the summer months, you're missing out on the beauty that Pennsylvania has to offer throughout the winter season. You won't regret taking a tiny break from hibernation to come and explore stunning Ridley Creek State Park in the snow.
Located between Newtown Square and West Chester, the sprawling state park consists of more than 2,600 acres of forested terrain and rolling fields with the namesake creek gushing through the heart of it. Even in the fall and winter, Ridley Creek State Park remains open to visitors from sun-up to sun-down. Head to Ridley Creek State Park to enjoy a brisk jog on the wide paved path, to go for a hike along the nature trails, or to gaze upon the beautiful Hunting Hill Mansion and the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation.
