Hearn Swamp parallels Forestdale Road to the north and can be seen well from the road. Most of the approaches will require off-trail navigation. While Hearn Swamp is very close to the road, and a map and compass and/or GPS might not be required, it can‘t hurt to bring these items along. The fishing here is pretty good but the trout are not overly big.

Direction to access: Leave Wilmington following the Memorial Highway (Rte. 431) toward the Whiteface Toll Road. Take a right onto Gillespie Road and follow here to Roseman Lane on the right. Follow Roseman Lane to its end at Plank Road (Forestdale Road), take a right. After about 2-mile or so the swamp can be seen to your left.

Shore fishing: Yes, in select areas. Some shore areas are thick with alders not allowing for ease of access.
