Experience the magic of the outdoors right here in Delhi! Hiking is free and simple to do, and great for any time of year. Hike our scenic trails and breathe in some fresh mountain air - there are many great hikes to choose from!

  • Gribley Trail (3.08 miles)
    Named after the beloved character in the children’s novel My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George, which was set near Delhi. The trail starts at the end of Sheldon Drive near the high school in Delhi. After a steep climb, the trail passes through varied vegetation, offering views of the village. It then proceeds west near the ridgeline of the mountain, then finally descending to meet the Bulldog Run Trail. Follow the Bulldog Run Trail to the Immanuel Lutheran Church Trailhead.
  • Bulldog Run Trail Loop  (2.39 miles)
    Named after Delaware Academy Central School’s mascot, the trail meanders the side of Federal Hill in an easy loop, starting and ending at the Immanuel Lutheran Church Trailhead.
  • Frightful’s Falls Trail (.36 miles)
    Named after the falcon, a second character in My Side of the Mountain, this trail connects Bulldog Run to the Gribley Trail.
  • Bramley Mountain Trail (4 miles)
    A moderate level trail leaving to the summit of Bramley mountain, where there are open views, a former fire tower, and an abandoned bluestone quarry. Impressive cliffs and caves line the footpath between the summit and the quarry. Access the trail by parking on Glen Burnie Rd, one mile south and uphill of its intersection with County Road 18, Delhi.

Delhi Farmers' Market Starts This Week

We love the warm weather because it means Farmers' Markets!

The Delhi Farmers' Market is a wonderful opportunity to connect with local farmers and producers. Shoppers can expect a wide array of products including fresh local produce, cheese, fresh baked goods, locally raised bedding plants and hanging baskets, locally produced crafts and maple products. Purchasing locally grown produce and products keeps more capital in the community and it is environmentally friendly since it was grown or produced within a drivable distance, reducing the amount of resources required for transport.

This year's market will have something for everyone.

Join us every Wednesday through September at Courthouse Square in Delhi! 

Networking Event this Thursday in Delhi

Our goal as an organization is to be a resource to businesses in the region and we would love for you to utilize us as a resource and join us to help support the entire business community. 

Next month, we are excited to host another networking mixer. Please join us at Tay Tea on Main Street in Delhi for an evening of community building with light snacks, tea, drinks and more. We're excited to use this meeting to kick off the Pellegrino Grant for 2017 and also talk about some of the great new things that we are planning for the rest of the year.
