An easy walk through natural and managed coastal-plain woodlands in Blackbird State Forest, famous for its Delmarva bays— the small upland ponds of mysterious origin that dot the forest’s ten tracts. Like many of Delaware’s other managed woodlands, much of Blackbird State Forest has been a “forest” for less than fifty years. The trails on the Tybout Tract, for instance, pass through areas that were tilled fields until 1941, when the state acquired the land and began cultivating stands of loblolly and white pine. Along with the managed parcels, acres of natural hardwood forests border the Blackbird trails. These are lovely tracts of red oak and maple, sweet gum and poplar, with the lush understory of flowering trees and shrubs common in wild coastal-plain woodlands. Special considerations: Delaware state forests are open to hunting during fall and winter. Hiking during the state’s deer hunting season is not recommended.
