Have you ever realized for years you have missed out on something right under your nose?
I have driven past this space so many times, and this week decided to stop and see what was here. The George Lorimer Preserve is 87.8 acres and is a combination of meadows, woods, Valley Creek, birds, ponds, wildflowers and a small trail system all open to the public for free to walk and enjoy.
It doesn't take long to walk, but if you have some dogs, as long as you keep them on leash it is a wonderful place to take them for a walk. Lots of it is in the shade and I felt like I was back in England walking public footpaths across the countryside again.
The walking is fairly easy and today I only came across one other person using the trails with a couple of dogs.
Set on a semi rural road. N Valley Road in Tredyffrin Township the preserve has a small car park, trails are obvious, and this is an easy walk for anyone.
The preserve is managed by the Open Land Conservancy of Chester County, which is a 501 (C) (3) land trust supported by over 500 members and volunteers. You can learn more or sign up as a volunteer at www.openlandconservancy.org, or call 610-647-5380.
Here are some other Chester County Preserves and Conservation Easements the land conservancy manages.
You can also follow them on Twitter @openlandconserv or www.Facebook.com/openlandconservancy. Maybe I will see you walking on of the trails now we know more about them.
