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.

I love this trail. It is poorly marked in a few spots. The wooded sections are cool and scenic. It is an awesome way to tour the largest pond in Delaware!

Really nicely marked trails. Fun run

Great trail for road biking! It's on the canal with great views. The ride can be a bit challenging when there is headwinds, but still an amazing time.

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.

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.

This trail is a great hidden gem in the Bethany Beach area. I discovered it while exploring the area on my hybrid bike. A pleasant, shaded ride through marsh an pine forest with some scenic breaks.

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

Nice park and lots of hiking to do there. Would definitely go back and hike the other trails at this park. There are other activities to do there besides just hiking. Disc golf, GoApe zip lining.

Great trail a bit windy

Wish the trails were a little better marked

I really liked this trail. Good distance if you don’t have all day. Nice hill workout. Nice views through beautiful horse country. Easy to follow.

This trail was quite popular for good reason. Sun coming through the pines was breath taking. I made a note of the private camp sites. Beware! Port a Johns are a distance and water even further. Backpacking with a car! Sounds good to me. Longer trail and tent on list for the future. Bottom line, worth the drive from Wilmington!

This is a great hike especially in the fall. It is challenging enough for a afternoon walk. This is a good hike for all ages because there is a playground. I have also biked this trail and it is very nice around the lake. I also recommend stoping to see the island trail it is really neat.

Nice trail for a afternoon hike but nothing amazing. The trail is about 5 Miles long and is good for all ages but bring plenty of water.

Love this trail. Great walk to clear the mind. Only met a few people along the way.

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!

Never crowded on weekdays and the fall foliage is one of the best on Delmarva.

clean and easy walk

Nice flat trail for easy bike ride or a run off the road to enjoy some nature. Nice walking for pets & kiddos as well. Crushed gravel & also sandy path that goes to a small "secret beach", past an old abandoned barn then back to parking lot. At the bridges that cross water, try to stay quiet as you approach to see the Egrets and Herons that are usually present fishing :) Deer and Turkey are always around as well if you keep an eye out for them.

nice easy trail!! very peaceful and beautiful
