This past June, my dog and I did the Blue Trail in a little over an hour, nice short hike.

Great for walking, dogs, and the family. As many say, it is generally a level trail that's ideal for walking. If you are looking to get into mountain biking this would be a beginner (very beginner) place. They do have a few obstacles setup throughout the trail.
If you're a dog person, they have a portion of the pond set aside just for dogs. Very friendly place and well frequented by folks that have dogs that love the water. I'm one of them. Just a word of caution though: The water quality is fair at best. The do have posted warning about a certain type of algae.

Overall a good hiking experience. Off the trail for sometime while got a chance to discover white clay creek a bit more. It was a Saturday afternoon and I only saw one couple along my way. Definitely worth a try to get self refreshed.

Nice local trail.
My comments are that unless you are a resident of DE and have a permit, there is a parking fee of $8.00 for out of state residents.
My other comment is that the main loop is crushed stone while the outboard loops are paved. Would be nicer if the trails were all the same surface.
Despite the above, the trails have pleasant scenery, nice open spaces and outdoor facilities such as picnic tables, playground, lake and exercise stations scattered around the main loop.

Definitely a fun trail to hike. I didn't see anyone else on the trail all day and this was a weekend morning. Has more elevation than I expected for for the area and provides some nice views off the park. There are a few detours you can take to extend the hike and see the white clay creek. The monument itself is fun to check out and the trail was maintained pretty well! Overall the trail provided for a good day out.

Visited this trail beginning of April. Very short and flat trail...probably good for running. I did a bike ride through the trail and got lost for a while. I had to use the GPS off my phone to find the main road and there was barely any reception. Make sure you bug spray, there are many ticks there.
