“Loop through on mostly paved paths for a complete run option from the Boat House parking area to the covered bridge.”— Zander Göpfert
This loop run heads from the Boat House parking area up along Neshaminy Creek to the Schofield Ford Covered Bridge and back along a few paved trails, accessing the hiking-only Nature Trail as a final reward.
Staying with this route, take the Neshaminy Creek Trail to the left (west) to follow above the banks of the creek as the trail bends to the north toward the Schofield Ford Covered Bridge. This scenic spot is a favorite among photographers and anglers for its scenic charm, especially in the autumn months when leaves are changing. There are a few picnic tables across the bridge to relax and enjoy a snack or rest before you continue on the Covered Bridge Trail to the southwest.
Just over two miles from the start, you'll arrive at an intersection with a drinking fountain. Turn right onto the White Pine Trail to follow the western boundary of the park to the Dairy Hill Trail. Take the Dairy Hill Trail to the left (northeast) for a brief section before looking for the Number One Lane Trail to the right (southeast).
Stay on the Number One Lane Trail, passing another opportunity to fill up at a water fountain, crossing through more exposed fields. The wooded area ahead of you is where the hike-only Nature Trail loops around Porter Run (either leg of the loop can be used), providing the return section to the Neshaminy Creek Trail and Pedestrian Causeway.
