This is a great little park in the middle of Delaware County. Nice walking trails. Fishing. And they have special events throughout the year, such as a Civil War reenactment, which is a lot of fun.

We found the site via TrailLink and thoroughly enjoyed the paved loop bike ride. It was weighted towards pedestrians (90/10 split) but there is plenty of space to move around safely. Will definitely be going back soon.

We liked this great park; it took us out of the busy life atmosphere; the forests are huge and full of life... Animals and birds are every where... You can ride horses as well.... The castle like office is a breath taking building.....

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.
