Explore the most popular Parks in Delaware with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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.

Beautiful trail for a nice walk in the woods! Trails are well marked and well maintained. My friend and I went in the autumn and the trees and leaves were beautiful. It was great for pictures, I will go again!

Please update the trail details. A fence is installed and no longer is the trail accessible or active. Nice pond view and fishing spots otherwise.

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.

Really nice trail! Take my pups frequently.

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

Lovely walk for a crisp sunny day in Fall.

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.

A bit muddy but very scenic and tranquil.

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.

Would be much better if it wasn't clear that residents have gotten to it

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.

Very quiet place to hike and enjoy the view. I grew up in those woods before park takes over.

Fun trail! It is well marked and it took us c. 2.5 hours to walk this trail.

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!

great for a shady hike. if you dont know the trail already it might be hard to navigate the first time. love to come on my work breaks for a little nature fix.

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.

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.

Nice quick hike. Enjoyed the path. Saw some spectacular bird’s nests! Nice and shady for a hot day.

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.
