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.

Very nice loop as well as many side trails. You can see many trees in multiple stages of life as well as some meadow type area in between the pines. This was an enjoyable winter hike. As a local to the area, I would recommend heavy bug spray in the summer months.
I did not give full 5 stars due to the fact that nothing is marked. I had to rely on the gps to lead the way down the many winding trails.

Quiet and Empty

Not sure about the trail itself but we parked and noticed every other car parked in the lot had a man just sitting in there car. Either a popular spot for drug deals or some weird meet up place? Either way we were sketched out and left.

This is a nice trail in Delaware. There are picnic tables about four miles into the hike and this is a great spot to eat lunch while enjoying views of the pond and re-energizing. The trail does go through the disc golf course and this can be very annoying, both for the golf players and the hikers, as both are interrupted by the other. Easy hike, enjoyable views of the pond throughout.

It was okay. Was a little confused with the route so I made my own and this app definitely helped. Next time I plan to actually hike the mapped out route.

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.

This is, as others stated, a very difficult trail to follow. The markings are ridiculously absent and the map offered at the trailhead is completely useless. However, there are a couple decently moderate hills that are available to climb, but they are definitely off-trail. Wear boots- not shoes- in the fall as the leaves cleverly hide many rocks/roots and there are TONS of hidden muddy spots. Was a pretty walk through the woods, but would have been much, much better if we didn’t have to stop every so often to check the AllTrails map.

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.

I liked this trail but not marked. Would’ve been lost if not for app. Nice scenery though and a bit of a workout.

This trail follows 2 creeks, Rocky Run and Hurricane Run. As you walk besides these two creeks you will find small waterfalls and unique rock outcroppings on which lush green moss grows. The creeks are also very clean and clear which adds to the beauty of the place. This trail is somewhat hilly but I would recommend it to almost anyone. This trail is one of my personal favorites and I will certainly hike it again.

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.

I love this park and trail. It's easy to forget you're right in town. Like others have mentioned it can get a bit crowded for my taste when the weather is nice. Part of this is due to the park being a hotspot for Pokemon Go, which I play myself. Didn't realize there were always groups or cars parked in certain areas for this reason until I started playing. There is a paved path that goes around the edge of the park and then some gravel trails if you venture into the trees. We stay out of the trails in the woods all Summer because the bugs are too much for us and there are a lot of washed out spots that retain water the whole Summer.

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.

As others mentioned, paths are not very well marked. However I kinda like this. Just grab one of the paper maps at the trail head, and follow the disc golf holes, you won’t get lost. Very light traffic and tons of path options make it an enjoyable spot.

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!!

The gravel trail is wide and smooth, with little elevation change. Part of it is a raised boardwalk. The trail passes through salt marshes, along the western border of Gordon Pond, and through upland forest of pine, juniper, and oak. Very pleasant and easy. Connects to the bike loop trail in the northern end of Cape Henlopen STate Park. Hint: park in the free lot at Deauville Beach, about a mile south of the southern entrance to Cape Henlopen State Park, and bike in from there - save $5 ($10 out of state) park entrance fee.

Took my dogs today and it was a nice peaceful mini hike! The trails aren’t marked great but they’re pretty cleared off and there is a dog park and play ground as well!

nice ride big hills

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.

Trail is not marked and is a sandy service road. Not the worst thing, but wasn't expecting. Redeeming quality was the large forest pines out there.

Not bad has a little of everything very easy to follow

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.

They need to mark the trails better! Hiking overlaps bikes and runoff ways.

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.
