A Relaxing Oasis

Come to White Clay Creek to escape the encroaching development of New Castle County. The park's lush greenery and sparkling streams offer a refreshing change of pace and countless opportunities for outdoor fun and relaxation.

Scenic Trails

Hiking is one of the most popular activities in the park. Thirty-seven miles of trails lead explorers to historic sites and scenic vistas overlooking lush valleys and impressive rock outcrops.

Hikers and mountain bike riders can enjoy trails at Possum Hill and the Judge Morris Estate, or follow the Pomeroy Rail-Trail to the pedestrian bridge over White Clay Creek.
