Prized for its scenic parks and waterways, Milton is truly an amazing place for outdoor adventurers. There is kayaking, boating, and fishing along the Broadkill River, and plenty of public boat docks and fishing piers. There’s a footpath along the Broadkill River called the Governor’s Walk. To the east, the Edward H. McCabe Preserve features scenic nature trails. To the west, the Pemberton Forest Preserve and the Ponders Tract Trail System offer even more trails.
Just down the road, the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge is a favorite of wildlife and landscape photographers. And south of Milton, the Redden State Forest—Delaware’s largest state forest—features over 44 miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding, biking, and bird watching.
