White Clay Creek Preserve and State Park

Yesterday I met up with some new friends from a group I have joined who hike regularly. I am finding all sorts of places where you can walk short or long distances. Whilst it is cold and the trees have no leaves right now you can see these will be wonderful places come Spring through the Fall.

White Clay Creek

We met up yesterday at White Clay Creek Preserve and State Park, which is right on the Pennsylvania Delaware border. When it was mentioned we would have some hills to climb in Delaware there was some joking that there are no hills in Delaware and maybe "those hills" should be movedinto Pennsylvania. We hiked 10 miles, starting out along the creek, all wrapped up warmly due to the cold, but as time and miles passed we warmed up, until we stopped for a snack on an open hilltop getting chilled by the strong winds.

It was certainly a lovely place and has a multitude of trails to walk, bike or run on over a large acreage. So glad that somebody thought to acquire the open space and conserve this as a place of refuge where you can decompress and enoy nature.White Clay Creek

What I love about these places we hike is that they are so often steeped in history. As we finished the hike, we came across this sign indicating this was the site of Minguannan Indiantown and the Lenne-Lenape or Delaware Indians leader/chief Machaloha had sold land to William Penn on October 16 1683.

Nick,

Your pictures are enticing, and I know I would have enjoyed the walk.  We ended up nixing our walk as strong winds brought in clouds and rain.  No complaints, somedays are like that.  Maybe later today if it stops raining. A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel when we met, it was really bitter, but once I layered up and we got moving it was fine. There was a strong wind when we stopped for a snack and that got us chilled again, but overall it was a beautiful place and I look forward to going back later in the year.

Nick, what a lovely area to go for a hike, even in the winter.  Can only imagine how beautiful it is in the spring/summer.

Joan Cox that is exactly what I was thinking when we were walking yesterday. It was also pretty busy, so can imagine when the weather is warmer it will be very busy.
