Maple Run Tract

Friday, May 24, 2024

Other Names

Pecks Pond, Deleware State Forest, Maple Creek, Maple Swamp, Delaware State Forest

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Deleware State Forest offers about eight miles of mostly hard packed but smooth ATV trails. The trail system has light elevation changes and is fairly easy, making it a good choice for novice riders. The main staging area is paved and has a map kiosk and vault toilet.

There is no fee to ride but ATVs must be 58 inches or less in width to fit through the gates. Also machines must have current registration and proof of liability insurance.

The trails are open for riding during daylight hours and while overnight parking is not permitted, camping can be found about 20 miles west at Promised Land State Park. A marina with kayak and canoe rentals plus a lakeview restaurant can be found about two miles south of the staging area.
