Beaver Valley Road

North of downtown Wilmington.
Has been used for hill climb time trials in USCF races.

Ebright Azimuth

448
137
In New Castle about 6.5 miles north of downtown Wilmington. The actual highpoint is in the middle of the interesection of Ebright Street and Ramblewood Drive.

(a.ka. Tower Hill). The Highest Point in Delaware. It's the only state high point in the US located in the middle of an intersection and is the second lowest state high point after Florida. Technically, this is not a much of a hill or a climb—but it is included for those cyclists seeling to ride the highest paved roads in every state.
Louviers Hill



East of Newark at the intersection of Route 72. Starts near the former DuPont Louviers complex - which is now an MNBA building and runs pas Louiviers Country Club.

Probably the steepest hill in Deleware.
Monkey Hill



Downtown Wilmington.
This infamous steep cobblestone hill was part of the Tour de Trump and Tour DuPont Prologue from 1989-1995.
