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.

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!

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

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 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.

One of the best hikes in the Brandywine river valley I have gone manny times and it is still beautiful I advise it for all ages and during the spring,summer and especially during the Fall.

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.

This was a nice little hike for being so close to the city. The parking lot at the trailhead is a bit sketchy, but since it's only 10 minutes from my office I would definitely do it again.

great fun trail!

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