Description:

 Arrive ready to leave at 10:00 a.m. from the car park of the Ashland Nature Center (3511 Barley Mill Rd, Hockessin, DE 19707) for a 3.5 mile hike.  We will probably be lead around the property by Joe Sebastiani from the center, who will point out some things of interest as we go around.  Trails are well maintained, and there are some hills.  There will be a $5 entrance fee for those who are not members of the Delaware Nature Society.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS: From the Pike Creek Shopping Center, take Rt. 7 (Limestone Road) North to Brackenville Road (2 miles). Take a right on Brackenville Road and drive 3.4 miles to Barley Mill Road.  Go straight at the stop sign, turning left into the parking lot before the covered bridge.  From Rt. 52 travel northwest on 52 and about 1.5 miles after passing Rt. 141 turn left onto Rt. 82, Campbell Road.  In 1.2 miles turn left to stay on Rt. 82, New London Road.  Stay on this road for 2.4 miles (this becomes Creek Road at some point), then turn left onto Barley Mill Road across the train track.  In 0.2 miles turn right into the parking lot after the covered bridge.
