23 mile training hike to familiarize yourself with the trail in preparation for the actual End-to-End hike on April 13 (advance registration required; see www.wilmingtontrailclub.org). Registration not required for the two warmup training hikes.
This event is good way to get into long-distance hiking as there are no long climbs or rugged terrain.
You should be comfortable hiking at least 10-15 miles before attempting this hike.
Here are the directions to the start:
Meet at Delacy Soccer Complex parking lot just north of Brandywine Creek Picnic Park by 7:20 am, ready to leave by 7:30 am. From the junction of Rtes 52 and Creek Road (Old 100) (at the end of the bridge), continue north on Rte 52. Turn left on S. Creek Road, then left into the Soccer Complex Parking lot.
