White Clay Creek State Park is the best park in Delaware for hiking. There are lots of trails for hiking and biking varying from 1-5 miles. Some of the trails connect with White Clay Creek in Pennsylvania as well.

Love to hike with my dog! This park has so many trails that you'll never get bored. There are signs all over so you won't get lost. Most, if not all, trails are bicycle friendly.
