on Walking Dunes Trail

18 days ago

walked part of it on a cold Thanksgiving weekend. beautiful

Easy trail that is paved. Good for dogs. Hill is great for incline! And also leads into two separate wooded trails

Great hike with lots of fun views. We took our 5 year old son and our dog. Trail was relatively easy but had enough obstacles that our son felt like he accomplished something. Rock climbing wall was really cool and seemed pretty easy to climb. We ended up finding our own trail and ended up hiking 2.5 miles in about 1.5 hours.

My Golden and I went on a short and easy hike today. This is a nicely kept trail next to Judge Morris Estate. The mountain bikers we came across seemed to be enjoying the trails as well. Lots of laughs.

Really nice trail! Take my pups frequently.

Nice trail easy access walked two dogs on leash. Easy to manage with others on trail as well.

Easy trail that leads to awesome rock climbing area with a view of a waterfall. The parking situation is a little weird, but its well worth it for a short hike with great views.

As a senior walker, this is a definite moderate trail since the rocks and roots are plentiful. It is a beautiful place to walk and my dog loved it. I can get lost in my own back yard so I confess I did get lost once lol.

More than moderate, got off trail a few times but was able to find my way with GPS.

nice shaded trail with good high view of brandywine creek. dog friendly.

Excellent excellent trail, it’s very flowy for biking fast. Marked at every intersection for great navigating. The skills section is just reopened.. it’s like an amusement park for bikers... Love it!!

Fun trail! It is well marked and it took us c. 2.5 hours to walk this trail.

This was my first time to Trap Pond. I am a lifelong Delawarean and when I come to Sussex county I usually stick to the beaches, but I wanted to do something different. This was a nice easy hike around the pond. I wish there had been more views of the water. This seems like a great trail to do some trail running as it is flat and not many roots of rocks in the path. Bring bug spray! Watch out for spider webs across the trail :) all in all a nice day in Southern Delaware.

Better trail than David English with great scenery and variety only marginally marred by extensive bike rutting and not enough foot traffic in several of the grassy crossings.

This trail is pretty good but not great. Firstly this is actually part of White Clay park and thus hase several different trails. As of writing this the trail was listed as lightly trafficked which is incorrect. This trail is a pretty popular mountain biking area. This is not a trail if you are looking for peace and solitude. There is an airport nearby and you can hear traffic and people on adjacent paths talking.

Many bikers are polite but I have heard bikers complaining about walkers on the path and some bikers seem to feel entitled and want you to move for them. Since this is primarily a bike path the trails can be very thin.

Easy hiking but beautiful trail

I love Cape Henlopen, it has to be the coolest place you can camp. Even though its a small state park, you’re right by the beach. So you can camp and walk over the dunes and you’re at the beach in 10mins. Its so peaceful at night with the wind, crickets, and the sound of the waves. And you can always find a camp ground year round.

Huge Wasp nest near slot to pay entry fee. Got a $100 (!) ticket for not paying. Would avoid until they get rid of wasp nest. Money hungry state trying to suck every last penny out of us. And you know that ticket money is not going to making the Park better and getting rid of wasps.

First time here and I have to say it was a nice experience. Dog friendly and easy for children to hike. I took my 7 year old son and he loved it !!! He did end up a little tired but he managed to get through. The waterfall was our favorite part

Very nice! Did the twin creek trail it was long

Rolling hills, wildflowers and birds, woods and fields. I was charmed by this hike. We ended up going off the trail that the map here shows, but ended up completing a 5.8 mile loop, using the app. We had to Ford a stream. It was muddy and a little buggy. Still, gorgeous and a pastoral delight. I will definitely be back. Note: there are a lot of small offshoot trail. It was confusing, even with the map downloaded. Luckily, there is pretty good cell reception on this trail, so we were able to record our movements and figure out where we were.

Paved loop around a reservoir. First 1/4 mile is up to reach the loop. Paved trail. No tree cover, so can be brutal on hot days. Nice, pleasant walk we have taken with our kids. Good family walk as is stroller friendly.

This is known as the Twin Valley Trail locally and by the Park. Very nice trail with modest elevation changes, a couple of creek crossings, and some nice views. Great family hike. My wife and I have done it with a two and a half year old and one year old strapped to our backs. Our now four year old had walked most of it on her own two feet. Most of it is under tree cover so a good hot weather hike.
Plus, you get the Arc monument, so an interesting bit of history/geography thrown in.

Really nicely marked trails. Fun run

Nice trail, shaded about 90% of the way. Could be better marked in spots. Flat most of the way, with a fair number of tree roots to navigate. Good trail for beginner mountain bikers.

Awesome waterfall along the way! Easy to walk and dog friendly! It was hard to find parking close so you will have to do a little extra walking. My friend and I had a great time!

We enjoyed the lovely scenery and challenging elevation. Even though it was shorter than we usually hike, we both got a good workout. If you want to get a nice view of the waterfall you will need to take about a .2 mile detour, but well worth the extra steps.

this is my go to trail. its easy enough to walk, but can be jogged on quite comfortably in most places.
