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.

Very steep heading up but once you get to the North Trail it levels out just in time for the views. Well worth it. Woodpecker Trail to North Trail then Appalachian Trail back to Woodpecker put us somewhere just over 5 miles.

Liked this trail a lot! Pretty challenging terrain with multiple hills, but also some good spots for running. Mostly shaded, and stretches along running water with pretty rhododendrons. Last bit was just an uphill grass walk for about a half of a mile, which wasn’t my favorite. But other than that good hike!

The hike had some awesome views and places to take a dip in the water! Had an overall enjoyable hike which took about 5 hours to complete. The end of the trail was a gradual incline with high grass and the top didn't have the cool view I was hoping for (unless I missed something). Would hike again.

Fantastic trail with some amazing views! Well groomed trails, great for barefoot horses, but has some pretty steep inclines. I can’t wait to go in the fall!

Was there supposed to be water at the spring? This was my first time up this way. Got cut short due to storms. Brutal. Didn’t even make it to the AT. Lots of cool woodfrogs and newts along the way.

We could only get a little way in before the trail disappeared completely. And the 'no trespassing' signs with the sounds of nearby gunshots from hunters was ominous.

Amazing hike. Lakeside / falls / ferns + rhododendron forests / bamboo / some nice views and chance to see some birds of prey. River crossing. Another beautiful falls section. Some evergreens. Really fun out and back - took me 5 hrs though the last uphill old forrest road end section could be skipped unless going to a car in north lot, Ended up being ~ 11 miles total. Pretty underrated - kinda stumbled upon it (much better than Kelly’s Run / Pinnacle trails across the river). Echoing others - bring bug spray. One of my favorites in eastern PA so far

Very dangerous for mountain biking, must have experience and proper gear. Was an amazing experience

Hilly, very bucolic. You spend about equal time in the middle of a forest and in bucolic scenery with pastured horses, corn fields and small farm houses. Fairly heavily traveled, we saw one group of horseback riders, several (3-4) individual mountain bikers, a couple trail runners and a few other hikers- though it is a beautiful Saturday. While not well marked, it is pretty easy to figure out where to go. I parked at 289 Ramsey Rd, Wilmington, DE 19803 ("Woodlawn Parking Lot"), and crossed the road to make it a longer hike. Hilly but not challenging, but a lot of sun due to infrequent forest coverage. Don't think I will do it again, but am not displeased with the experience.

def recommend this hike if you live in the area; nice scenery, dog friendly, some elevation, light traffic

We did the trail loop backwards by mistake-- if you see one red post if you look across the path there is another. Looking at the building at the end of the path, the counting up mileage is to the right (beginning of trail) and the left marker is the end (mileage counts down). We took the red trail, to the orange and yellow back to the red--which was said to be 8.9 miles and came out to be more like 10.5miles from my garmin watch (the last 1.5 miles was rough). The extra mileage would be fine except it's a lot of going up and back down, so if you have bad ankles and knees wear appropriate gear. I hike often but was mentally not prepared from reviews to go for this hike. There is limited shade (aka almost none) it was 86 without a cloud in the sky and was pretty toasty/hot-dress appropriately, bring sunscreen, snacks and tons water (my 3L pack got me just to the end). The views were nice, tons of birds singing, wild flowers and we got to see a fawn still with all its spots. Mountain bikers also use this trail and we almost got taken out by them zooming down one of the steep soon to be ups for us. We only heard the spokes on the wheels from the first biker to get off the trail-they had some speed and it definitely wouldn't have ended well.

Excellent trail. Waterfalls and streams alongside trail path. My dog and I had a blast. he’s passed out on the floor right now. Make sure to bring bug spray.

Had a fantastic hike with my younger brother just under 5 miles. We turned left at the start of the border trail and then continued on until we reached the covered bridge trail. We followed that trail until we got to the teal trail and took that back to where we started. It was differently an intense hike!! I workout 4-5 times a week and I was so thrilled to have my younger brother there to push me those last 15 mins or so. Especially when we hiked mostly uphill the last mile and it was hot!! We both took ticks off our necks almost immediately upon noticing them on our hike. It would have been easier if we took a break but we went straight through. It was beautiful. Truly breathtaking views!!

This trail is very hilly but beautiful. I recommend bringing water because it is challenging. It is a nice workout and over all a nice trail.

Took the woodpecker trail to the AT then took the north trail on the way back. A stunning variation of plants and wildlife there. This trail is fairly easy and very fun.

This was an absolute perfect hike. Not to easy and definitely not to hard. Wildlife, spectacular views and not crowded. The app says no dogs allowed but that needs to be corrected.....dogs are definitely allowed here

Awesome views and scenarios. I completed the blue line and is short and easy. American bison and wildlife make a great experience.

Awesome hike. It had an excellent variety of grades and stunning scenery. Some parts were challenging, and the late spring heat during the day didn’t make it any easier. During the full 4 hours of the hike I didn’t see any other hikers. This is a very quiet trail. My only downside is around mile marker 6.5/7, the trail can become a muddy mess making it nearly impossible to continue without boots or sacrificing your shoes. This lasted for roughly 100 meters of just nasty mud. Other than that, fantastic!

The north and south scenic trails made it worthwhile. The views are great on the north side. The south trail is basically a mile of boulder hopping. A great adventure if you have the right shoes! The AT sections were fairly meh. I thought all of it was marked pretty well.

Spent today completing the entire border trail. Worked clockwise, from mile 9. It is May and the trees are still sparse, but so much of the trail is unshaded, so be prepared with sunscreen. And, because of this, it's likely a very hot trek in the summer. Several climbs were quite steep, but afforded stunning views.

It struck me how well the trail was marked. I never once had a problem following the red blazes until about a mile from my car. Just after the bison, it was hard to tell where the trail continued. Even after I determined that, it was difficult to see the exact path to follow. There is a bit of construction in the area, so that's probably the reason. Just follow your map or GPS carefully in this area.

The first .8 miles is a killer! The Delps spring was nice to sit, breathe, and cool off at. The 2 vistas were beautiful though.

Challenging hike, start early, bring bug spray.

This is a really fun trail with lots of diversity. We hiked all the way to Bake Oven Knob and back for about 10.5 Miles. Climbing Bears Rocks and Knifes Edge was really cool, and Bake Oven Knob makes a great lunch spot with spectacular views!
Lots of rocks on this trail!

Nice trail....but we went across the street instead of turning around and made it into a 5.5 mile hike. Highly suggest keep going rather then turning around and going back to the start

One of the more strenuous trails I've hiked, with the gain being somewhere around 900 feet / mile. The trails coming off the AT - particularly the North Trail - are not the best marked, but when you find them you will be blown away by the views!

Took North and South scenic trails, which are more difficult and have a lot of sun exposure. The AT sections were easier and had coverage. Great loop. Wear sunscreen and a hat!

Spent my late teenage years here. Awesome trail, just dont veer too much off the trail, there are a butt ton of ticks in some places, especially in the Kidspeace area.
