Today husband and I started the 3 Notch Trail at the library in Charlotte Hall MD, on a perfect autumn day. The trail was everything we could want. Interesting scenery, well maintained asphalt trail, friendly fellow travelers. As "super seniors" (ages 75 & 81) we limited our trip to a 16 mile there and back again. Can't wait to finish that last segment, but winter approacheth, so next time, next year...
Very nice trail and view. Got to get the pack to enjoythis ride
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.
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.
My husband and I rode this trail and loved it. It's a flat and easy enjoyable ride. Very nice and clean parking areas at both ends. The trail did have some pine cones and branches that could be cleared. It may be in future plans as they expand; a port o potty would be useful. Overall kudos to those responsible for this trail.
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.
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.
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
Where the trail currently begins (in Milton, Delaware) is unmarked and there is no parking. We parked on the side of a little-used road (Cool Spring Road) and jumped on the trail at the intersection of the busier route US 9 East. (A good address to look up is the Brimming Horn Meadery which is right on the trail and very close to the western trailhead.) We took off on the smooth asphalt trail through an airy forest of very tall pine trees, whose canopies hovered about 30 feet above us. Riding along the flat-as-a-pancake trail, we passed by both new and more established neighborhoods where flags and flowers festooned the trail’s edge to welcome bikers and pedestrians. We’d read that there were 12 intersections along the trail, but very few had any traffic. It was a fast and easy six miles to the outskirts of Lewes, a quaint little beach town, and it is here that we transitioned onto the Lewes-Rehoboth trails, which make up essentially one big 17-mile loop.
We decided to head counterclockwise on the loop, riding south, then east, through cornfields, neighborhoods, open marshes, and wooded patches outside Rehoboth. The town itself is where you can find any number of stores or restaurants to buy food or water. After a fairly short jaunt through the neighborhood streets of Rehoboth, we rode on the wide shoulder of Ocean Avenue heading north along the coast. Soon we were entering Cape Henlopen State Park and riding on one of the most unique and picturesque trails we’ve ever encountered. It’s almost entirely marsh land, inland bodies of water, and sand dunes. Snowy egrets, gray herons and a wide variety of marine life populate the marshes. At various points along the trail, there are observation decks and places to view the ocean and the remains of abandoned World War II-era watch towers, artillery, and barracks. It was a little tricky winding our way out of the park but eventually, we ended up on a road that paralleled the beach and led back into Lewes. There’s a cute little brewery right on the trail, then another big name brewery – that is a favorite of ours – back in Milton.
Stayed at Cape Henlopen State Park and found we could connect the park trail, into Lewes (permanent pylons separating you from light traffic into town). There we connected to the Lewes-Georgetown trail for a short bit, then crossed Hwy 1 at the library to the Junction-breakwater trail. Rode into Rehoboth, where we were able to ride the boardwalk(after season, not allowed summer), then found the Gordon’s Pond trail (after a mile or so on residential road) back into Helopen park. Ended up with about a 19-mile loop! Nice shade and forest on the Junction-Breakwater trail, which is probably great for summer, a little cool in the shade in Nov.
Nice Ride through a State Park, I have been here on Many Weekday Afternoons after work & it has never been crowded. Main Trail Loops around Trap Pond & through the Campground, some Boardwalk, some Stone, Some narrower riding through the woods on Stone Dust. Plenty of other areas in the Park to ride as well. Easy to get 10 Miles in just cursing around the Park. Very Enjoyable
I have ridden this Trail many times as I live on the Maryland Shore & Go to Assateague often, I never added it here as it isn't a True Rail Trail but noticed someone had so I'll put my $.02 in. Very Flat, only hill is the Bridge over the Bay. Can be quite windy so I usually Park at Visitor Center & Ride south first as this is generally into the wind, but be sure to check the Flag when you get there as it does sometimes turn abound. Horses may be seen anywhere on the Island....you will see plenty of Horse Droppings! There are 2 Bayside Access roads which are worth a visit, there is also a Bike Trail in the State Park Campground Area that is easy to get to. It ends at a gravel Parking lot near a Construction access gate Midway down Bayberry Drive, so you can get from one Trail to the other & add some variety to your ride. No Ocean Views from the Trail but there are plenty of spots where you can stop in The National Park Campground Loops & walk up over the Dunes. Trail Ends at OSV Zone, which requires a Permit. I often Bring My Jeep & make a Day of it here, but it gets VERY Crowded on Summer Weekends. You can always Bike in even when there are Massive Summer Backups on the Road. Easy to get 10 - 15 miles in here if you get Creative.
