Rock climbing wall

Rock climbing at the park is pretty awesome. You can climb up on the side and anchor from the top. It has several anchor spots with different difficulties.

The trails are well groomed with varying degrees of steepness. I take my dog with me - and he gets a good work out. The parking is easily accessible. But stay on the paths - there are copperhead snakes.

I have been a few times as part of a photo hike and I participated in their first of the year hike for 2014. It has some nice paths and is a peaceful woodsy place. There are some old interesting structures from the now defunct Bancroft Mill. There is also a wall that is used for rock climbing but I... More

Tried to find this park while visiting town with my dog. My GPS could not locate it and the local signs ended somewhere short of the actual park Drove around the neighborhood for 1/2 hour trying to find it, then left.

It was incredibly hard to figure out where to access this park from, and where to park. We went to the park headquarters, it was fenced in and closed. The signs were confusing. We ended up leaving the car parked in front of a house in a neighborhood, and walking up to "blue Bell Barn" ( I think that was... More

Off road trails or paved trails, rock climbing area, quiet & scenic views, along the water & amazing views make you feel like you're not in Delaware.

We went here for a hike on Mothers' Day. It is a beautiful park with plenty of things to do and see as are all Delaware State Parks!

Whenever I go on a trip I look forward to finding new places to run. Alapocas Run did not disappoint! I happened to luck out in the timing of my trip; the fall foliage was at its peak, making it even more beautiful. There are several trails that wind through a park that is filled with mature trees, creeks, and... More
