Middle Run Natural Area has a 20-mile network of wooded trails shared by hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders. In many circles it's considered the premiere place to go mountain biking in Delaware, especially when combined with Fair Hill Natural Resource Management Area in nearby Maryland.

Similarly, these same trails make for a great place to go hiking and wildlife watching. If you're on foot, however, we recommend you leave the iPod at home. You'll need to listen out for the many mountain bikers that frequent this popular park.
