Come to White Clay Creek to escape the encroaching development of New Castle County. The park's lush greenery and sparkling streams offer a refreshing change of pace and countless opportunities for outdoor fun and relaxation. Hiking is one of the most popular activities in the park. Thirty-seven miles of trails lead explorers to historic sites and scenic vistas overlooking lush valleys and impressive rock outcrops. Hikers and mountain bike riders can travel through the Middle Run Valley Natural Area to Possum Hill or hike the Pomeroy Rail-Trail to the pedestrian bridge over White Clay Creek. There are plenty of year-round activities available at White Clay Creek. The Nature Center hosts fun and interesting public programs, and visitors can enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing, birdwatching or disc golf. Families may take advantage of the large picnic area and pavilion for a reunion or to host a casual barbecue with friends, followed by an evening concert or other special event throughout the summer. Sledding and cross-country skiing are among the many winter activities available at the park. Locals can sign up for the White Clay Creek State Park mailing list! You'll get updates about upcoming programs and events, announcements and job and volunteer opportunities.

The trail is great for a brisk walk and open nature, but it wasn’t very scenic. Still a great escape for any Delawarean looking to get out of the house!

Great trail with mild elevation. Takes you through a beautiful wildflower area.

Nice meandering with minor elevation changes.
