The Creek Road Trail extends north from a connection with the Pomeroy and Newark Rail Trail in White Clay Creek State Park. The scenic park features over 37 miles of hiking trails through wooded valleys just north of Newark, home to the University of Delaware.
Most of the trail parallels White Clay Creek, with the rail-trail directly across on the eastern bank. At Hopkins Road, the other trail ends, but the Creek Road Trail continues north with the stream out of sight to the Pennsylvania state line. Connecting trails head even farther north from the border into Pennsylvania's White Clay Creek Preserve.
Near Wedgewood Road, a bridge along the Creek Road Trail provides lovely water views and a connection to the Pomeroy and Newark Rail Trail. Trail users can continue south on that trail to trek all the way to the university and downtown Newark.
Parking for the Creek Road Trail is available at the White Clay Creek State Park Nature Center off Hopkins Road (to the north). Additional parking can be found farther south along Wedgewood Road near the trail bridge over White Clay Creek.
