LOCATION NOTES:

This is the State of Delaware Flint Woods Nature Preserve not the adjacent DNS Flint Woods Nature Preserve.

Permission is not required to use the State Preserve but is required for the DNS Preserve.

I found this blurb on the DE State Parks Web site under Brandywine Creek State Park:

Flint Woods Nature Preserve – The Flint Woods Nature Preserve protects over 40 acres of mature Piedmont hardwood forest. The Preserve contains a Golden Saxifrage Forested Seep Community, of which there are fewer than six known to occur in the state. It serves as an anchor, along with Brandywine Creek State Park to the south, for more than 2,000 acres of protected lands (including 1100 acres of Conservation Easements and private Nature Preserves) creating a corridor between Brandywine Creek State Park and open space in Pennsylvania’s portion of the Brandywine Creek watershed. Six first order streams that ultimately flow to Brandywine Creek originate on the Flint Woods Nature Preserve. Two of these flow northward into Pennsylvania.

Amenities: Loop Trail (pedestrian only), parking along Rt. 52 in Centreville, DE

Acreage: 138 acres

DRIVING DIRECTIONS:  

This area is large enough for several cars, without blocking access to an adjacent private road or the park entry (visible metal gate at the south end of the pull off). Please park at an angle in this area to maximize the space. Coming south from PA, this parking is on the left shortly after passing Centreville Layton School, also on the left. Additional parking can be found on the south bound side of DE-52 just past Gregg Ave a block away.
