St. Michaels Nature Trail

short and sweet

April, 2021 by larogan

Easy parking at small clean park, then hop on paved flat trail. A couple of nice water views and a covered bridge. Crosses several neighborhood streets with minimal car activity. Very nice.

Marshyhope Hike and Bike Trail

Nice for a stroll

April, 2021 by kabolster

Asphalt uneven by church parking lot, but otherwise well-maintained. Saw 2 blue heron, killdeer, and sparrows. Some activity by boat ramp, otherwise we were the only people on the path. WCs by Marina Park and at boat ramp. Drizzly day when we walked, but we will come back again.

Middle Township Bike Path

I got really annoyed a while back trying this before and having to repeatedly switch to roads. Now that it's complete, it is nice. The asphalt is smooth for riding and all is nice. (I only did the southern tip to near stone harbor.)

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.

Cross Island Trail

Fantastic

December, 2020 by ameliawiyy98

What a great trail. Lots of places to stop for lunch too. I will be back.

Middle Township Bike Path

All Clear

December, 2020 by svpanthers80

Just updating the info for this trail, it is now open end to end. Enjoy.

Prickly Pear Trail

Fresh Pond DE State Park prickly pear

November, 2020 by kferrusi

Well kept, wide trail on level ground; it was a great walk. Some bike riders went by with plenty of room to spare. The air smelled fresh and clean. We walked all of the trails in the park in one outing. We will return in all seasons. And it was quiet. We could hear Rte 1 from time to time; but it was not intrusive.
