On the right side (west) over the bridge, it's fairly innocuous. About a mile of trail, fairly flat. Some log-overs, mud, small creek crossings, riding between Chester Creek and the old Penn Central railroad.
On the left (east) over the bridge it's a lot more interesting. 3.5 miles of trail that lead up a steep hillside that was part of an old limestone quarry. Side trails break off from the main trail forming the network. Big log-overs, (some close to two feet with no build-up), steep drops/climbs, rock gardens. Very important for beginners considering this trail: there are NO RIDE-AROUNDS at most of the obstacles and techy spots. Crashes are inevitable if your skills are weak.
Trails are fairly well marked, and it's impossible to get lost here. If you're unsure of where you are, work your way downhill and follow the creekside trails back to Locksley Road.
This is not a good summer trail. In late spring briars start to heavilly overgrow the trails, and ticks are everywhere. Prepare accordingly...

From Rte. 926 between West Chester and Rte. 352, turn south down Cheyney road toward Cheyney University. At the end of the college campus, turn left onto Creek Road. At the first stop sign, turn right to stay on Creek Road. Chester Creek will be on your right. Look for Locksley Road bridge less than a half mile from the stop sign. Park at any road side pull-off and ride back to Locksley Road. Cross over the bridge, and the trail will be on both sides of the road.
