Georgetown-Lewes Trail

my absolute favorite

June, 2021 by sarahstraus

One of the highlights of vacationing is Lewes is riding this trail. Well maintained and marked, and people are very friendly. Many residents along the trail have decorated entrances which my 10yo enjoys looking for/at while we ride

Pinelands Nature Trail

No dogs allowed

June, 2021 by kadesantis

The path is as described. Pine needle paths, flat, and a new raised walkway over some marshy areas was added in 2020. Dogs are not allowed. A nice shady walk for the most part.

Michael Castle Trail

Beautiful!

June, 2021 by jdrussell11

Great setting on a well maintained trail. Scenery included the canal, numerous bridges, birds and boats. GRAIN has a bar/restaurant right next to the water about halfway and the trail is bookended by Schaeffer’s Canal house to the west and Crabby Dicks to the east. Mostly flat with a few short elevation changes, including the switchbacks at the marina. Also has numerous lots for entry along the way.

Junction & Breakwater Trail

Great trail for families

May, 2021 by jenn.argabright

Flat, well-maintained with very little road biking. Other bikers are very friendly, and the views are beautiful.

Downs Park Trail

Relaxed, family oriented experience

May, 2021 by danadominguez75

A wonderful ride if you’re looking for a casual, relaxed experience. Pulled my three year old in a trailer and he loved it. Smooth riding experience. The beach and playground make this a great destination for kids. Definitely going to return. Bring a map because the loop isn’t well marked.

Jack A. Markell Trail

Smooth and Safe Ride

May, 2021 by normanbowers

Trail is smooth as it gets. Trail seamlessly connects to Wilmington River Walk. No water or restroom on trail. Suggest parking at trailhead just east of 1101 Delaware St, New Castle and ride both ways.
At the south end a few blocks of street riding south on South Street will connect to the Battery Park Trail.

Michael Castle Trail

Smooth and Safe

May, 2021 by normanbowers

Nice ride, smooth pavement and safe area, just a few road crossings so goes fast. Parking areas have restrooms but no water. At west end in Maryland Schaefers has good sea food and beer.

Georgetown-Lewes Trail

Riding the Lewes-Georgetown Trail

May, 2021 by contactdoug72

We rode the trail today with our Schnauzer behind in a pet carrier. The trail is in excellent condition and the massive trees and beautiful flowers and honeysuckle fragrances make it a tremendous experience. When finished it will definitely be a Rail Trail Hall of Fame nominee. Don’t miss doing this trail if you are visiting the quaint town of Lewes. The parking lot next to the Lewes library has beautifully clean restrooms and a fix-it station with a pump for minor repairs.

Georgetown-Lewes Trail

Great trail in the Lewes, DE area!

May, 2021 by steve.schwinn

Rode the entire trail yesterday as an out-and-back from Lewes. The trail is in perfect shape and is certainly popular based on the traffic of cyclists and walkers.
As noted in the description, at the northern end there is an easy connection to the Breakwater trail and "downtown" Lewes. The current endpoint is at busy Log Cabin Hill Road but there are multiple possible on-road loop routes back to Lewes.

Michael Castle Trail

Beautiful Trail very peaceful

May, 2021 by lakeshacollins6079

One of my best trails this far!!!

Newark Reservoir Trail

wow beautiful!

May, 2021 by alliebmazza

I love this! It’s not a very nature intense trail, but you basically go up a big hill and at the top is a flat loop around the reservoir. It’s super pretty and was great with the stroller!
