trail locations for Delaware

Nice clear trails, beautiful pines. But did not like the fact nothing is marked, no signs or trail markers.

First time visiting this park and we're definitely coming back. Lots of trails and lots of geocaches. Great combination!

I rated this 3 stars as it is relative to other places I've hiked. that being said, this is a nice reasonably flat section of trail. I've done quite a bit in brandywine and you can continue all the way up into pa or go all the way down past the parking area into a group of other trails. this here is the easiest section. we like to use brandywine as a place to acclimate our bodies with weighted packs for more difficult trips.

nice aerial view of Newark and area. Near pump house you can see Delaware Memorial bridge towers. Also get mix of animals mostly Mallards and Canadian Geese. Spring time there are plenty of baby chicks!

Great trail for a hike with two dogs. Encountered a lot of mountain bikers and some trail runners. Everyone was very friendly. I wouldn't consider it moderate. It was pretty easy. I did choose this hike because I'm trying to complete the DE State Park Trail Challenge. According to the map and my GPS, I walked the whole trial, but I didn't find the symbol. Awe shucks...guess that means I have to go back :)

Surprisingly nice view of Newark. The reservoir itself is pretty, the trail is very nice and marked with distances.

there is some good mountain biking here if you are a more advanced biker. lots of rooty and rocky side trails. good uphill climbs must have decent cardio. could give it more stars if the trails were longer. but if you look around there is some fun challenging stuff.

Easy loop around the pond. Saw a flying squirrel! Very nice nature center aiming toward sustainability. Well kept Disc Golf course in the same area. Very quiet in December. Almost no one else around. Free access after November for the off-season.

Do you have to be a Delaware resident? Does anyone know?
