Killens Pond Loop, Killens Pond State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A walk around an eighteenth-century millpond through diverse wetland and upland forests. Set in the farm country of central Delaware, Killens Pond State Park straddles the boundary between southern and northern forests. Here you will see the loblolly pine and American holly forests typical of the wet, sandy plain to the south as well as stands of mature hardwoods common in the rolling hills to the north.

In places on the Killens Pond Loop, the trail itself seems to be the boundary between the two habitats, with the tall pines and dense undergrowth of coastal lowlands on one side and groves of giant poplars and oaks on the other—both, in rather different ways, quite beautiful. Add several nice views of the pond, and you have all the ingredients for an interesting, scenic, and refreshing walk. Special considerations: Bring insect repellent in summer."

Very nice trail! Did this hike on Thanksgiving with my daughter. About 8/10 of a mile in there is a nice wooden bridge over the pond that makes a good place to take pictures. Some hilly areas (not too steep), also some nice flat, meadowy areas. The views of the pond are nice, some bird watching opportunities. Trail is well marked.
