Bellevue Stroll

5 Completed 5 Reviews

This is my go-to park for walking. There are several trails inside the park that can accommodate walking, running or biking on paved surfaces, or on unimproved trails through woods. The Northern Delaware Greenway Trail travels from Bellevue to Rockwood and beyond. Search www.delawaregreenways.org for maps. There is a park admission fee, or you can purchase an annual pass.

This is an un-kept hunting area that has markings for deer stands, not a hiking area at all.

Nice hiking trail, no elevation changes though, but abundant wildlife. My dog and I hiked the 4.8 mile Loblolly Trail in a little over and hour.

Creek Road Trail, Brandywine Creek State Park

A nice stop to stretch our legs on a long drive. Bathrooms available. There is a fee for entry (4 Delaware, $8 out of state), but we found it well maintained and a nice spot for a picnic lunch. Took our dog for a swim in the creek- good for a quick walk & fresh air!

Alapocas Woods Trail

Super confusing. The location listed here is for the park office which is, for some reason miles away from any trail. The closest trail I found was a paved trail that ran Along a main road, where I saw a hooker giving an old man a hand job in her car parked along the trail. By the time I figured out this location was terrible, I looked up other trails at this park, and they were 20 mins away by car... If you are looking for actual hiking trails... Stay away. If you are looking for a really lame flat paved trail with lots of Wilmington trash this place is for you

Park is great. Trails are relaxing, never know what you will see as far as wildlife. Make sure you take water, .

Trail is complete awsome. Biked it 7/19/15. Only suggestion is to stop at all marked stops, and look as if you were in a motor vehicle.

Aside from the multi-use paved path, there are some moderate though short trails through the woods.
