    where was I? (Wilmington, DE)

    I stayed at a hotel on Rocky Run Way in Wilmington, DE last weekend. When I woke up in the morning and looked out the window I saw a bunch of MTBers meeting for a ride. My dirt brethren! I was jonesing for a ride. What trail head was the hotel near? I dropped in from California the prior night and didn't realize I was in a MTB hotspot. I need to figure out how to bring a bike with me next time. Can anybody tell me where it was? I don't know the area well. I was in the Homewood Suites but there are a couple other hotels there. Thanks.

    Could have been Brandywine Creek State Park? I've done a lot of running in that area but never went out biking, wasn't as into MTN biking when I lived there as I am now. But I think there are a ton of trails out there, its a really nice area.

    Another good place in the northern DE area is Middle Run/White Clay Creek - probably 20-30 mins away from where you were. Great singletrack and some fun skills trail stuff, check it out if get your bike out there!

    You were at one of the popular drop-in spots for the Brandywine/Woodlawn trail system. Lots of great trails their and in a few other systems close by.

    Yep, I often stay there when hotelling in Wilmy. Perfect for getting in a quick AM ride every day during one's stay. I just bring my dirty bike in/out via a side/back stairway and use a side/back door.
