About the Trails at Bondsville Mill Park ...
This 47 acre park follows the Beaver Creek as it flows toward Downingtown. There are walking trails where nature can be enjoyed first hand. While walking through this historic site, you’ll see the dams and mill races that provided a constant supply of water to power the water wheel. The remains of two dams can be seen from the Blue Trail. The first was a holding dam to store water overnight and the second would have been used to power the mill in Fisherville.
While the mill ruins are fenced off and too dangerous for hands-on exploring, visitors can get within feet of the mill, and see all the detail of the remaining infrastructure. The park offers a ¼ mile compacted gravel loop trail around the mill buildings and along Beaver Creek. There is also a nature trail up to the water tower and a loop to the north of the property through old spruce, maple and oak forest. The Blue Trail is also a nature trail as it follows the Beaver Creek. The White Trail has become a favorite in December. Volunteers and park visitors hang Christmas ornaments on these old spruce trees.
