Chester Creek Trail made the list of top Delco stories of 2017 - it's about halfway through the article.

First of Two PartsBy Colin Ainsworth

Tomorrow (Tuesday, Dec 19) through Dec 21, the trail section between Mt. Alverno and Mt. Road is scheduled to be closed for trail repair. This is to remedy a design issue near mile marker 1.8 that was causing erosion when it rains.

Sometime within the next few weeks the trail will be closed between Mount Road and Mt. Alverno for 2-3 days mid-week for repair of a section of the trail near MM 1.8 that has been eroding. Exact dates of the closure will be posted when known. UPDATE: LOOKS LIKE THOSE DATES ARE DEC 19-21.

We've received reports of someone who has been dumping large amounts of trash in the trail trash can at the Knowlton Road parking lot, driving a blue Jetta with a smashed front fender. The trash cans are intended for light use by trail users, not in lieu of paying for residential trash service. If you see this individual, please notify the state police with the license plate.

It was a pleasure meeting Valerie And Barry today on the trail. I was able to thank them in person for this wonderful contribution to the area. And I’ll be sure to share a few pics from today Barry.

This afternoon at approx 3:15 pm, a car was broken into at the Knowlton Road Parking Lot. If anyone saw anything around this time, please contact the State Police

We are asking everyone to please hide all valuables from view. Make sure that your car is locked. Please report any suspicious people and vandalism to the Pennsylvania State Police.

In 2017, we celebrated the official ribbon cutting for Phase I of the Chester Creek Trail in April, followed by installation of benches and trash cans through the assistance of local Eagle Scouts and the donations of loyal supporters.

Going forward, we’ll be working in partnership with Delaware County, which has agreed to take over most of the long-term maintenance of the trail. We’re also pleased to report that Aston Township is moving forward on work to extend the trail so...uth of Creek Road, and Middletown Township is working on trail networks that will eventually connect with the Chester Creek Trail.

Our work as a non-profit “Friends” organization is far from over, though. We are counting on your continuing support as we assist the county on trail improvements, cleanup efforts and volunteer activities, as well as advocating for further trail extensions. Our expenses include insurance and maintenance, as well as proposed new amenities, including more benches, doggie bag stations, a bike station, and signage.

You can support our work by purchasing a brick on our memorial brick walkway (see post on our webpage), or by sending a donation (link on our website). All donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for your continuing support. We wish you a happy holiday season, and happy trails in the new year!
