Description:

Fort DuPont State Park & C&D Canal Triangle, DE.  Depart at 9:00 a.m. from the Fort DuPont State Park – Colter Rd Lot, Delaware City, DE, for an 8-10 mile hike. This unusual triangle of land is surrounded by the Delaware River to the east, the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal to the south, and the old Chesapeake & Delaware Canal to the northwest.  There are many historical remnants here. (FYI: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=166243)  No fee, but no restrooms.  Bring water and lunch.  DRIVING DIRECTIONS: This area was recently purchased by the "Fort DuPont Redevelopment & Preservation Corporation".  And most of the street name signs have been changed, although most mapping information remains with the original names!  During the transition, both old and new street names are included in the driving directions.  Near  2546 Colter Av, Delaware City, DE 19706 ( 39.570330, -75.586467).  From the intersection of DE-7 & DE-72. Travel south on DE-72 for 1.5 mi. Continue straight onto DE-9 & proceed 2.4 mi. Cross the small C&D Branch Canal bridge, but not the huge C&D Main Canal bridge! Immediately turn left onto New Castle Ave / Old Elm Ave & proceed 174 ft. Turn right onto Delaware Ave. / Oak Ln & proceed 0.1 mi. Then turn left onto Kent Ave / Colter Rd & proceed 0.1 mi.  This old lot is on the right, before the buildings.  This area was recently purchased by the "Fort DuPont Redevelopment & Preservation Corporation".  And most of the street name signs have been changed, although most mapping information remains with the original names!  During the transition, both old and new street names are included in the driving directions.
