Known among local nature lovers as a tranquil escape from the surrounding urban world of
northwest Philadelphia, the 2.4-mile Radnor Trail runs through shady wooded areas of Encke Park at Radnor-Chester Road to Sugartown Road and Route 30. It follows along the former Philadelphia and Western Railway Company corridor founded in 1902 as part of a planned intercontinental electric railway. The line was in use until 1956. In 2005 the corridor was transformed into the popular multi-purpose Radnor Trail. There is a number of historical markers along the trail, which tell the story of the region’s past. The plan is to extend the route to connect the trail with the Chester Valley Trail, Valley Forge and the Heinz Reserve.
