The Prickly Pear Trail is a 3.5-mile loop in Delaware Seashore State Park’s Fresh Pond area. The trail runs through young forest and open meadows, with the eastern stretch featuring a crushed stone surface and the western a more challenging sand base. At the trail’s northern end, trail users are treated to views of Beach Cove, an inlet of Indian River Bay.
A paved connector trail provides direct access to State Route 1, while the Fred Hudson Road Trail follows the road to its intersection with Cedar Neck Road.
Parking for the Prickly Pear Trail is available at the trailhead on Hickman Road in Ocean View.
