Where Not to Go Sledding

While a sled down the dunes may sound tempting, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) reminds winter thrill-seekers that sledding is never allowed on the dunes.

Delaware’s sand dunes are home to a fragile ecosystem that could be negatively impacted by activities like snowboarding, skiing and sledding.
