Northern Delaware Greenway Trail

Very steep - like a mountain face from Blue Ball Barn to Brandywine Creek

February, 2021 by captinbandwagon

Started at Blue Ball Barn and rode to Brandywine Creek, its the steepest paved trail I have ever been on with wicked swichbacks and places you had to get off thb bike going downhill. Very thick woods and quiet for an urban area. If I did that section again it would be without bikes.

Redden State Forest Headquarters Loop Trail

Beware - No trail markings!

January, 2021 by msscottwg

While scenic, this trail is not marked at all. Even while on the outside trail loop, it was difficult to tell which direction to go at major trail intersections. Trail markings are essential to communicate where a hiker is currently, and where you need to go next. If you don't have WiFi, you can't count on referencing GPS or TrailLinks online map--which can be downright unsafe if you're a novice hiker or have young children.

Gordons Pond Trail

Great ride!

January, 2021 by david.morrison_tl

Well-maintained. Things to do along the way, if you choose. Herons everywhere for bird-lovers. Great panoramic view from Lewes to Rehoboth. Highly recommend.

Prickly Pear Trail

Family friendly trail

December, 2020 by qaix3sm8vw

Visited at the end of December and it was a great trail to do with kids ages 11, 8, and 5. Plenty to explore and nicely maintained, flat trail. Plenty of trees offer some protection from the wind.

New Castle Battery Park Trail

hi

December, 2020 by aaronjeffery211

it's a good trail

New Castle Battery Park Trail

Pretty & Functional!

December, 2020 by aaronjeffery211

I live super close to Battery Park and can actually access this park and it's subsequent trail through the Jack A. Markell trail, which is also very nice(10/10 recommend). But this trail offers great views, especially during sunrise and sunset. Never too crowded, lined with some trees along with labels on a few of them for their biological information to keep things interesting, and close enough to some shores of sand to collect shells, rocks, etc!
