    Had a nice hike starting from Knight Road at Green Lane.  That area is very interesting with random trails and bodies of water all irregular shapes.  Has DVOA ever considered expanding the map?

    Kathy, there are numerous possible sections along Knight Road, generally seperated by inlets of the reservoir.
    Are you referring to a section or sections close to 29, Red Hill Road, Markley Road, 663, or all of them?
    Also, which side of Knight Road, or both?

    I was referring to all of the park in that area.  It felt like a jigsaw puzzle.  I'll bet parking might be a problem.  The many road crossings of knight road are striped and marked.

    OK.
    I had a superficial look at some of this terrain many years ago, probably around the time of the initial Green Lane-Upper Perk map, and was uninspired by what I saw.

    However, judging by internet sources, it looks like many changes have taken place since then, including the possible addition of all the county-owned land on the NE (upland) side of Knight Road, which I was ignorant of.

    As you mention, parking is frequently a limiting factor, which we would need to figure out.
    Many of these sections are disconnected, or barely connected to each other, so mapping here would be more like a new map than an expansion.
    It helps greatly if Knight Road is deemed safe enough for O traffic to cross, which it might be. Your comment, and my look at Google Street View seem to support this.
    On the intriguing side, the vegetation type and patterns look strikingly different from anything else we have.

    Bottom line, it certainly looks like this terrain warrants another look.

    There isn't much parking up there. Only one big lot, along Knight Rd, towards it's east end, near Gravel Pike. That's where the horsey set parks for their rides. I know a lot of riders, even from Chester County that uses the trails N or Knights Rd to ride their horses. It's actually quite a maze of trails in there. Water just north of Knights Rd, interspersed with open fields, cedar trees....Quite lovely.
