Comments: A gorgeous, quiet trail through mature and emerging forests and meadows, and the largest hills in the park. Hike to the highest point in White Clay Creek State Park, and continue into Pennsylvania. Bikes are allowed on much of this trail, so stay alert. The trail continues to the right at Yeatman Station Road, or go left to connect with the Charles Bailey Trail and loop back to the parking lot.
The trailhead is at the David English Trail and continues into Pennsylvania.
There are some nice hills on the trail.

Several small bridges cross streams.
Trail climbs upwards and there are a few big hills.
A meadow opens up, and the trail rambles through the grasses.
An arbor of trees frames the trail.
When you get to Corner Ketch Road, keep going straight on an old paved road.
Follow this paved road a short distance, and down a hill.
The trail picks up again on the left, so keep your eye out for this post.
The forest is quiet and tranquil here.
