Middle Township Bike Path

Smooth Ride

June, 2022 by sheilahalf1007

No shade and could be very hot on a sunny day. TodY it was high 70’s and lots of wind which made it pleasant. Stopped at Hawk Haven winery along the path but opposite side of the road-dry to semi dry wine choices. Railroad park has a water/bike station a log with port a pits. We linked with the cold spring trail which was a star less than this one and wend to Cold Springs brewery. Total mileage for the two 23+

Cape Henlopen State Park Bike Loop

nice loop

June, 2022 by ed193

My son, grandson and I rode e-bikes around the loop several times. Some nice overlooks, particularly the “hawk watch.” We camped in the state park and accessed the trail from there. Most of it is shady and paved. There are a number of old preserved artillery guns and the lookout tower to see. There are several good beach access points with racks to lock up the bikes.

Blue Heron Trail

May, 2022 by maryepalermo

This short trail connects to the Michael N Castle Trail which adds over 12 miles to the ride. See the comments with the same title. Nice scenic trail, not overly crowded or difficult. Great for kids. Safe. Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the boating activity on the canal.

Blue Heron Trail

May, 2022 by maryepalermo

We have ridden this trail many times. We always see at least a half dozen Blue Heron, sometimes many more. We also have seem multiple Bald Eagles. The trail is primarily flat, with 6 short inclines and a switchback. There is always a breeze riding in both directions which on a hot day can be very cooling. At times the crosswinds can be brisk and you will definitely feel the effect. There is opportunity to stop for ice cream or an adult beverage in multiple spots. Lots of parking to accommodate any distance. Definitely recommend this trail.

Junction & Breakwater Trail

A varied delight of a trail

May, 2022 by robert.richter89

I started mid way on the Georgetown-Lewes trail and connected to the J&B trail right by the Lewes library. At first I had my doubts about this trail as it mostly followed housing developments that provided little shade but provided an immaculately paved trail.

After about the first two or so miles of easy to follow trail riding though developments the J&B started to surprise me with a gravel trail winding though salt marshes and a heavily wooded area. Both of these offered plenty of shade and a wonderful chance to get away from the built environment.

I ended at a park in Rehoboth Beach where I rode my bike about a mile on a side street to the beach to take a quick stroll. The trail is in near perfect condition and it is very easy to follow with adequate signage to keep you on the trail. I would caution riding during high heat as I'm sure the section though the housing developments would be brutal due to lack of shade.

Middle Township to Dennis Township trail

April, 2022 by kcwals

Newly created trail from the Cape May County Park and zoo to the Oceanview South Seaville Volunteer fire station in Dennis Township. The trail is 7 1/2 miles long and extends through mostly wooded area and passes by a horse farm, residential communities, two golf courses. Although the trail is usable crews are still working on putting up fencing along the trail. The view is beautiful and the only time traffic is encountered is when the trail crosses over a roadway otherwise it is a serene setting. My entire ride on this new section of the trail northbound and southbound round trip from the Zoo was 37.50 miles

There is a newly opened nicely done parking lot at the Chesapeake City trail head one block up from Schaefers Restaurant.
Nice fully blackedtoped trail, two hills, but the rest very flat.
