Walk Through Untouched Old Growth Forest At Delaware’s Barnes Woods Nature Preserve

Old-growth Forests are rare in the Mid-Atlantic region, as much of the land has been developed by loggers, trappers, and developers since the 1600s when Europeans began to settle the region. You can, however, find a small patch of old-growth forest in Delaware, if you know where to look! The Barnes Woods Nature Preserve is a hidden gem tucked away in Sussex County, and it’s the perfect place to go for a relaxing walk in the woods.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
