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

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.

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

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

Such pretty scenery.

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!

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.

Little to short but beautiful views.

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.

The path and is clean and maintained well. On the path you will pass a pond and a mansion.

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.

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.

Fun brisk trail to walk along in the Spring-Summer. A lot of old Delaware to discover here and nice natural sights. The path can get a little popular though, especially during fairer weather.
