The Northern Delaware Greenway Trail spans 9 miles of northern New Castle County from Fox Point State Park on the Delaware River to the Brandywine Creek and the City of Wilmington. This urban trail connects with Wilmington's Walkway System and links together residential communities, schools, businesses, parks and cultural sites. Just about half of the nine miles is rail-trail over a level riding surface. The rest of the trail is filled with rolling curves and short drops so leave the in-line skates at home and prepare yourself for a nice stroll or a fun bike ride with the family and friends. A map of the entire trail system is located on the Delaware Greenways web site http://www.delawaregreenways.org/maps.html
