nice shaded trail with good high view of brandywine creek. dog friendly.

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

First time here and I have to say it was a nice experience. Dog friendly and easy for children to hike. I took my 7 year old son and he loved it !!! He did end up a little tired but he managed to get through. The waterfall was our favorite part

Great for nature lovers!

This park is well paved and in good shape. The views of the river and boats is a nice to see. Yes, the park is close to the Amtrak and interstate and there is some noise but what do you expect, this isn’t in a national park. The land is a capped dumped site. Good use for land that is basically unusable otherwise.

Awesome waterfall along the way! Easy to walk and dog friendly! It was hard to find parking close so you will have to do a little extra walking. My friend and I had a great time!

We enjoyed the lovely scenery and challenging elevation. Even though it was shorter than we usually hike, we both got a good workout. If you want to get a nice view of the waterfall you will need to take about a .2 mile detour, but well worth the extra steps.

Very well-groomed area with a lot of friendly people and dogs.

It was a beautiful day and the trails are well-kept. My dog and I loved it!

We have walked here and biked several times. The biking was a little rough as the trail up is hard and many people to avoid and pass. We walk here a lot and go sit by the water. It’s a nice safe peaceful walk. The construction has the parking messed up but it’s worth a trip very nice

This little trail is all paved and A very odd location. You have a view of the river and ships coming in which is cool however the other side is the highway. Not very clean but a small paved loop we used to teach our kid on his bike.

Such pretty scenery.

Great spot for birds. Try riding a bike through the driving trails for a good ride.

Lots of great trails and beautiful scenery

While the birding and views are incredible, the bugs are AWFUL. I expected (and really wanted) more trails but walked along the gravel road for a while, instead. When my dog and I got back to my car, I found 4 ticks on me and over 30 ticks on my dog. I highly suggest just going here for a scenic drive (it is worth going to see), an in-your-car picnic, or make sure you put some oregano or grapefruit and peppermint essential oil on you to repel ticks and mosquitos if you get out to walk around.

While the trail was a little shorter than I would have liked, I enjoyed the elevation (according to my iPhone, the path elevation is about that of 11 stories) and it still took about 2 hours to hike the whole thing (that was with a lot of pauses for water and rest for my old dog). I loved that I couldn’t hear any traffic (something that I look for in a good trail) and that water crossed the path several times. It was really clean, too! The small valleys covered in little yellow flowers with a perfect spread of trees and a great combination of shade and sunlight was the topping on the cake!

Fantastic views and very well marked and maintained trails. Just gorgeous!

It's an average run of the mill trail.

Nothing to see and no particular memorable sights along the way.

If you're looking for a casual walk this is a decent enough place.

Easy level trail. We brought our cat and she had no problems. Would be great for a trail run

Little to short but beautiful views.

Pretty much echo what others have said-weird location, nice view of the river, all paved and a flat weird loop. Probably wouldn’t do it again. I’m new to Delaware and wanted to try some different hiking spots, this is definitely not hiking but it’d be fine if you were just walking around especially with kids. They have little grills and picnic tables too

Visit often. Close to my house, nice hike.

Love these trials. Not too far away from my house and my puppies love it too.

I enjoy this walk because you can walk or bike along the Delaware river it is a nice walk but is very short and flat.

This trail is short and hilly but it is a good workout. I would rate this a easy walk and it is very easy to access.

It is not a long hike but it is quite hilly. Part of the walk you spend by the Brandywine Creek and the rest is going up and down hills. There are nice views and I find it the most beautiful during the fall when the trees are changing colors.

Very nice gardens also a unique history of the property. The property was owned by the DuPonts but now you can take tours of the mansion and walk through the Beautiful gardens. This walk is good for all ages because there is a enchanted garden for kids to play in. This walk is very easy.

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.
