First hike with my 3 and 5yo. They did pretty well. I didn't do the full trail. Kids enjoyed where I could get their water shoes out and they played in a ankle deep stream for about 20 mins. They were also very distracted trying to pet all the dogs we passed.

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.

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

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.

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.

Great for trail running! Beautiful scenery! The grazing horses are wonderful company. Definitely a treasure chest of short trails. Puppy friendly!

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.

Beautiful drive getting there. Nice hike. good biking.

I rated this 3 stars as it is relative to other places I've hiked. that being said, this is a nice reasonably flat section of trail. I've done quite a bit in brandywine and you can continue all the way up into pa or go all the way down past the parking area into a group of other trails. this here is the easiest section. we like to use brandywine as a place to acclimate our bodies with weighted packs for more difficult trips.

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.

Just walked here yesterday for the first time. Hills give you a great workout! Beautiful scenery while walking too. Love that it's so dog friendly!

Beautiful place for an easy walk or hike!

Almost all of it in the sun. The big loop around diverges when it gets close to Limestone Rd. with two arrows in two directions. If you're coming around the loop and the pool was on your left and the back of Dickinson was on your right, then hang a left where the signs split to take you down to the fountains which was near my start.

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 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.

An amazing and unique museum with wonderfully expansive gardens and grounds to explore.

Great creek side walk. Great scenery, nice flat trail. would liked to have taken the mountain trail to the right, but, late night last night. looking forward to hiking the rest before the leaves disappear:)

possibilities are endless here. the scenery is a great reason to hike here is you are short on time. you can get a decent effort in under 2 hours.

this is my home court so to speak. I trek around this park multiple times a week with my boxer. it never gets old, and the people you encounter, and even the dogs at the wide open nature surrounded dog park are quality. if you see me there, say hi!

I hiked my own path and had an amazing time next to the water and up in the hills where there are creek beds and some elevation changes. The actual stone gravel trail is no fun. There is a trail by the creek and one called 'Rocky Run' which is up in the hill. Definitely going back and searching other side trails!
