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.

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.

Well marked highpoint. Its in the middle of a neighborhood so parking is hard to find in the area. USGS marker is also not easy to find. Best way to find it is to just continue towards th firetower after you get to the official sign designating the high point (its hidden in the dirt). In general, people around the area are very nice and are willing to help you if you're lost

I wouldn’t call it trail running but I run this loop almost everyday in the warmer months it’s a really nice loop if you’re looking to run someplace and want more than just houses and cars to look at :)

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

A very nicely maintained state high point. Nothing too special about the area, but also gives an excuse to visit Wilmington, Delaware. High point is easily accessible and you can literally park right across the street.

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.

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.

This trail may seam a little short but the property is beautiful. You will pass by the old Rockwood Mansion and then continue into the woods it is very easy but the property has some neat history.

This trail is very easy and can be done in less than one hour. It is out in the open on a paved path and occasionally goes into the woods. It is a nice afternoon stroll and It is definitely a beginner walk.

Some amazing spots and Delaware history!

Nice paved walk along the river. There is no shade along the walkway so I always plan my walks here according to the weather. Today was overcast and breezy which is perfect weather for this park even though it's 87 degrees.

This park has its pluses and minuses. Biggest minus is location - next to the highway and train tracks makes it noisy. Biggest plus is location - stretched right along the Delaware River. Very open with few trees. Major draw, for me, is that frequently big ships pass close by (cruise, container, tugs...) which makes it fun for kids. Also a good place to learn to bike ride as this is not a crowded spot. Yes, sort of a city/industrial location but a nice spot for a winter walk on a sunny day or when you want a change from a woodsy walk.

I've done this trail a couple times. It varies between paved and gravel (a small portion is sidewalk along a road). There are some small hills. In my opinion, it's worth doing, but is nothing spectacular.

Beautiful place for an easy walk or hike!

The trail is paved and in the open sun along the Delaware River. The park is squeezed in between the river, and the Amtrak Northeast Corridor. Both river traffic in the ship channel and rail traffic on the corridor are visible. On a clear day, both the Commodore Barry and Delaware Memorial Bridges are visible in the distance. I can't rate this trail more than a 2 because the howl of tires I-495, just beyond the rails overpowers any sounds of nature.

The trail is mostly paved and passes through both open and wooded areas. There are two short sections in Alapocas Woods and on the Chauffiel Tract that are gravel, and there is another short section between Rockwood and Blue Ball that uses the Talley Road. The trail is easily accessible from Bellevue, Blue Ball and Alapocas Woods State Parks, or from Rockwood County Park.

The walking trail is paved and mostly in the open sun. The south-eastern portion of the trail wanders through the "farm" property previously owned the Streed's.

When you are locating this highpoint it's a good idea to search with the gps coordinates which will take you right to it. Not much to say about it; just checking off another highpoint.
