Swamp Forest Trail, Lums Pond State Park

Easy trail but a nice combination of woods, fields and camping sites. Some areas are grass which I would like to see them actually make a trail but otherwise its simple and nice for beginners or for those who just want an easy ride for the day. The trail is narrow and only suited for one biker at a time in some spots. You will run into hikers and horses on occasion but I've never had a problem with people yielding to me or vice versa.

Are you kidding me?? Tried biking this trail and gave up about 2 miles into it. The trail is not for biking. My bike doesn't have turbo boost to propel me over logs and 4 foot wide creeks. I had to get off my bike several times to walk over these large logs, roots that were several inches high, and basically mush that my bike sank into. I could see how this would an adventurous hike on foot but not for bikers. I'm a fairly seasoned biker and have done moderate-aggressive trails so it's not me. Plus it's not marked, no map out front or a take-with-you map to even have any idea where you are. Like others have said it branches off several times so you have no idea if you are on the loop or not. Walk the trail first and then see for yourself if it's worth biking.

We hiked around one of the pools following along the auto route. This route is a level one way gravel road. Not much too it. Lots of birds along the way.

Very good mountain biking singletrack. Up-and-down, not all flat. Love it.

this place was awesome for being in Delaware a flat state. I loved how the trail went from woods to open fields and some pretty good inclines to declines. I liked how they used the down trees to make for riding on and challenging spots. I will def go back here and ride. the park is huge. be aware that they do charge by the car. I think it was like $7.00.

We have hiked the area several times, and have only seen hikers but there has been evidence of bikes. The trails are not marked, with rare exception. The paths are pretty obvious, and general guidance is provided: head uphill to find the parking lot. That advice is probably sufficient. The map I have shows many trails but no names or colors, and there are many side paths that complicate using the map. While there is not much to see, it is useful for the elevation change. Did scare one sleeping dear in the leaves...good workout for the heart!
