The One Hikeable Pond In Delaware That’s Simply Breathtaking In The Fall

Delaware’s state parks are stunning year round, and they’re all very accessible to the public! No worries about giant mountains or dangerous wildlife in this state. One of my favorite fall activities is hiking Lums Pond, Delaware’s largest freshwater pond that’s surrounded by breathtaking scenery and painted with the brilliant colors of fall.

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Of course, you can camp here in the fall… but I should disclose that the woods behind the pond are rumored to be haunted, and this might be the creepiest place in Delaware to pitch a tent.
