The 1,263-acre ChesLen Preserve, one of the largest private nature preserves in Southeastern Pennsylvania features sweeping agricultural fields, densely wooded stream corridors and rare serpentine barrens. There are many points on the property from which visitors can gaze for miles in any direction and see virtually no signs of modern development. The ChesLen Preserve is designated as an "Important Bird Area" by the National Audubon Society. Kayaking and canoeing are permitted and nearly 12 miles of unpaved trails ranging from easy to moderate are available for walking and hiking.
