Added by The Outbound Collective

White Clay Creek State Park Loop is an 11.5 mile loop hike featuring beautiful wild flowers and streams located near Newark, Delaware.

This trail runs through a wooded area and is great for all skill levels. It is mostly used for walking, hiking, running, and mountain biking. Though the entire loop itself is quite lengthy, there are connecting trails that you can embark on to add to or shorten your trip. The trails are well maintained. Since the park is quite large, it’ll be useful to bring a map along with you to avoid getting lost.

The scenic path, open fields, and opportunities to view wildlife make this a wonderful spot to get your outdoor fix in. There’s so much to explore!

This trail is accessible year-round and is both family and dog friendly. Be sure, however, to keep your dog leashed.
