Northern Delaware Greenway Trail

National Recreation Trail in Brandywine Hundred

A 10-mile “National Recreation Trail” runs through seven unique State and County Parks in northern Delaware’s “Brandywine Hundred” district — from the Brandywine Creek in Wilmington to the Delaware River!

This is the spectacular Northern Delaware Greenway Trail (NDGT). It encompasses over 1,200 acres of preserved natural lands in Brandywine Hundred, has over 29 miles of inter-connected trails and includes an amazing range of amenities for local Brandywine Hundred residents!

Northern Delaware Greenway Trail:  Walk, explore, hike, bike or just relax in Northern Delaware’s piedmont area.
