Half decent. Bike ruts throughout the length of every trail. There’s not much to look at, and not much elevation gain. However... for Delaware it’s not bad. When it’s not so muddy I’ll consider running or biking it instead.

This was a very nice trail. Started out early in 23 degree temp. We passed a couple on horses, a biker, a runner and another hiker. Very quiet and open trail. It was easy with some hills but the views were nice. The paths were open and easy to follow. Parking was plenty when we got there but by the time we finished it was full. I will definitely do this trail again.

We hike here often because it’s proximity. Trails are well marked. We always see other hikers. Currently the trail is flooded in some areas due to the crazy amount of rain. Definitely need waterproof boots but worth the trouble to be out in nature.

Very flat hike, small gravel terrain. Nice length but not much of a workout. This trail has nice side trails that are definitely worth exploring. There are multiple places to park and jump right on the trail. Felt more like a walk in the woods than a hike, as the trail has no roots/rocks and is incredibly well-maintained. Good for distance and pace-setting.

Half the trail is closed for hunters. Really inconvenient!

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

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.

Beautiful, shady ride through pine trees on a flat trail. Perfect for kids!

Beautiful but incredibly buggy in July/August. I was bitten even while running. Views of the water are nice alongside heavily wooded tree canopies.

Excellently marked well groomed trail awesome

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

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.

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.

The path and is clean and maintained well. On the path you will pass a pond and a mansion.

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.
