The Hiking Trail Hiding In Delaware That Will Transport You To Another World

Cape Henlopen State Park, in Lewes, is one of the most beautiful plots of land in the entire state. Not only does it show you the best of our bay and ocean, as well as one of the largest dunes on the East Coast, but you’ll find all sorts of trails and amenities to make your day trip (or camping trip!) unforgettable. One trail in particular is incredible – it takes you back in time to a decommissioned fort that was once home to soldiers during World War II. The artillery, bunkers, and an observation tower are all available for you to explore on the best trail in Delaware.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
