This route takes the road less traveled between Pike Creek and Hockessin along two winding forest roads: Millcreek road and Upper Pike Creek road. As you follow these two modest creeks, you will see farmhouses and estates breaking up the deciduous forest. A nice break from the main drags of New Castle County.
This route has a combination of well maintained thoroughfares and winding back roads. Back roads may have leaves, dirt and debris as would be expected from forest roads with no shoulder. There are plenty of gentle bends and sharp corners to be enjoyed.
This ride is in the heart of New Castle County and has plenty of restaurants, gas stations and more nearby. Anything you can want is south of the loop on Kirkwood Highway.
