Dike Trail travels a mere half mile along the edge of a great expanse of wetland.

Dike Trail follows a dike saddled by woods on the left and a marsh on the right. Legions of birdlife are examined and enjoyed each season. Resident birds include blue herons, egrets, hawks, shorebirds, flickers, mockingbirds, warblers, owls, and waterfowl. In fall, migrating geese enjoy a rest over at this Atlantic Flyway location. Binoculars are a welcome accompaniment along the hike. The dike trail ends at Petersfield Ditch. Retrace your steps back to the parking area.

Directions: From Milford, DE, Travel about 12 miles southeast along State Route 1 to its junction with State Route 16. Head east on SR 16 and proceed about 1.6 miles to main entrance. Proceed 1.6 miles to the parking area.
