Great trail

Road this trail with my wife 22 October 2022. Was very beautiful and temps were in the 60’s. Went from Delaware City to Chesapeake City and back for approximately 30 miles.

Middle Township Bike Path

Started at Sun Resorts Seashore and rode on the new extension just a little way past the zoo. I believe the extension connects with the Dennis Township bike path for a grand total of 13 miles.

Bob Trail

Nice Fall bike trail

October, 2022 by jamvjm

This was a nice ride to do in the fall. The route mostly went thru wooded areas. It was an easy mostly level ride over a gravel path that sometimes got narrow between the trees. It was 4.5 miles starting and ending at the nature center parking lot.

Michael N. Castle C&D Canal Trail

C&D Canal Trail

October, 2022 by carrollball99

Rode the Michael N Castle Trail on 10/6/2022. Temps in the lower 70's and clear sky. Not sure what to expect so we parked at the Biddle Point Trailhead off of Cox Rd. Parking for about 75 or more cars. Has non-flush type, permanent outhouses. From this point east to Delaware City is about 3+ miles. This quaint city is beautiful. Had a BBQ sandwich at Enda's. Rode south almost to the end of the trail. This trail is paved, smooth, and relatively flat. There is no shade at all so on a hot summer day better start early in the morning. People we passed on the trail were friendly. Next time I think I will park at the Summit Bridge Trailhead as it would be about mid-point of the trail. Was told there is a parking lot just west of the city. Scenery along the canal is beautiful.

Marshyhope Hike and Bike Trail

Nice route but needs maintenance

September, 2022 by jimmiec_tl

Drove over from our home in Bridgeville, DE for a short, scenic ride this morning. The trail going upstream (north) from the Marina is paved. One short section crosses over to the east bank of the creek and returns via the E. Central Ave vehicular bridge. Markings or directional signs for the continuation of the path are lacking, but we figured it out.

A short way above the return to the west bank, we encounted a section of flooded path due to the high tide but we continued on to the loop at the northern end of the path.

Returning to the marina area, we took the path downstream (south) under the MD 318 bridge. The path here is poorly maintained crushed stone and seriously overgrown. The flooding along this stretch was even worse so we weren't able to continue on to the very end.

Still the path is a nice, short ride (or walk) that offers peaceful views of the creek. We were even afforded a close encounter with a Great Blue Heron we somehow snuck up on along one of the wooden sections south of Rte 318. Hopefully, the town can find some money to put into maintaining/improving the path in the near future.

Middle Township Bike Path

Nice smooth ride . . . but there are some concerns

September, 2022 by wpjc8bfxnr

It is a nice smooth ride but there are a few concerns when crossing some roads on the trail. One, in particular, is where the homeowner along the trails decided to line his property right up to the road with Bamboo. So dense that the vehicles or bikers approaching the crossing have no view of oncoming vehicle traffic or walkers until they are on the very small side lane. Other concerns along the path are a few sharp turns where near SHGC where after heavy rains you can see the runoff of crushed shells or sand where you can easily lose control even during a low-speed turn. Not enough location markers.
