Description

Voted Best Walking Trails in Delaware by Delaware Today! Bring the whole family, including leashed dogs, to enjoy a 2-mile easy-to-moderate hike along paved paths and wooded trails throughout Rockwood’s historic estate! Staff will lead you through stories of Rockwood’s architecture and garden and the unique landscape of northern Delaware. Dress in layers for the weather and wear appropriate footwear (and two pairs of socks!). Meet in front of the mansion at the museum courtyard entrance and enjoy a sidewalk chalk activity and a complimentary warm beverage or snack. Bring your own mug to fill with hot tea, coffee, cocoa, or cider! Afterward, warm back up by taking a self-guided tour of Rockwood Museum’s holiday decorations and feature exhibition, Coming Home: Treasures of Rockwood. All ages.
