An easy circuit hike on three park trails in a forest of stately conifers and hardwoods. Circle a pond and bald cypress swamp, the northernmost stand of bald cypress trees in the United States. Tucked in the southwest corner of rural Sussex County, Trap Pond State Park is a jewel of a state park. Amid broad, flat fields of wheat and soybeans, the park protects a wonderful 3,500-acre parcel of wetlands, forest, and bald cypress swamp. In an afternoon on the park’s trails, you can stroll through towering stands of loblolly pine and shady groves of oak, holly, dogwood, and sweet bay. Among the trees and swamps, bird life is abundant; walk quietly and you are likely to see kingfishers, ducks, great blue herons, ospreys, hawks, kestrels, and a great variety of songbirds. Where the trail hugs the shoreline of the pond, there are great views of tall, thin-trunked bald cypress with their knobby roots bulging out of the shallows. Special considerations: Entrance fees are required during summer and on weekends and holidays in May, September, and October. Wear a cap, and thoroughly check your scalp and skin for ticks after your hike. During summer, bring a cap and sunglasses for the road portion of the loop.
