Wilmington Riverwalk

this is Wilmington

April, 2021 by aaronnathansmusic

If you’re coming to Wilmington, this is the place to see. Urban, busy, but in a good way. Connects to two more placid trails by the Peterson wildlife refuge. If you e never been here, check it out.

Michael Castle Trail

Enjoyable spring ride

April, 2021 by connorysh

We started at Biddle Point where the restrooms are open -- info that might be helpful to others -- and went west *almost* to Chesapeake City. It was not crowded, though there were plenty of folks enjoying the trail. As others have mentioned, the path along the canal is flat, flat, flat. However, it goes inland around the Marina and again further west. Those areas are hilly, not bad, but certainly not flat. Factor that into your ride, especially with kids. We started with virtually no breeze but apparently that is not typical. The breezes increased as we went west and we looked forward to the wind being at our backs on the return ride east. No such luck. Suggest folks plan for wind, both in clothing but also in stamina.

Matthew Henson Trail

very relaxing and pretty trail

April, 2021 by mpalmiter

I have biked the Matthew Henson Trail many times and it is very relaxing as it follows the water or has raised bridges in a very wooded area. Parts of it are inside a residential neighborhood but you would not know it. There is a lot of pedestrian traffic so be careful if you are on a bike

Delcastle Recreational Park Walking Trail

April, 2021 by gdfr5r5jmn

Paved circular path around sports complex and nice playground with exercise equipment along path. Fairly busy area for recreational walkers. Not particularly scenic but a nice county park.

Downs Park Trail

Well Worth It!

April, 2021 by 4qb8zx749k

This trail was simply beautiful. All paved and nestled through amazing forest and along the water. So worth the hour drive from my home and the $6.00 entrance fee.

Downs Park Trail

Well Worth It

April, 2021 by 4qb8zx749k

This trail was very beautiful. Nicely paved and winds through woods with breathtaking scenery along the way. Was about an hour drive from my home and entrance was $6 per car, but I will absolutely go back.

St. Michaels Nature Trail

short and sweet

April, 2021 by larogan

Easy parking at small clean park, then hop on paved flat trail. A couple of nice water views and a covered bridge. Crosses several neighborhood streets with minimal car activity. Very nice.

Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail

Great Trail!!!

April, 2021 by larogan

Beautiful, paved, flat ride along the canal with ample resting spots. Parking and getting to the trail was a little awkward and dangerous sharing a narrow busy road with vehicles for about 1/4 mile. Be careful with little ones.

Capital Crescent Trail

Capital Crescent Trail

March, 2021 by erinoh

This trail If you start in Silver Spring is a total of 11 miles one way. We started our bike ride in Bethesda. The trailhead in Bethesda is right outside the Capital Crescent Garage (31). It is free on weekends and holidays. There is a separate elevator for folks with bikes. We parked on level G2 right by the elevators, easy to get in and out of the elevator. Once you exit the garage, the trail will be right in front of you. From this point, it is 7 miles to get to the Georgetown Waterfront Park. This trail also runs parallel to the C & O canal towpath. There are breaks in the trail, so you can easily go back and forth between the two trails. A lot of people walking on the trail, so be careful if you’re bicycling. From the park if you go up Wisconsin Ave, you’ll find bike racks where you can lock up your bike. We knew we wanted to walk around Georgetown, so we brought locks with us. We took some time to window shop and eat. If you want a great cupcake, go to Sprinkles. Their cupcakes are delicious and better than Georgetown Cupcakes. The ride to Georgetown was downhill and easy. The ride back was harder because it was uphill. If you’re only doing the trail and you’re riding at a steady pace, it should take you 2 hours to complete. Round trip from Bethesda to Georgetown and back was ~15 miles. I wouldn’t recommend doing the trail from Silver Spring, there’s construction at the moment and they have a detour in place. Overall beautiful ride, great for adults and kids. Plenty to see and do!

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Great Outing

March, 2021 by raviketna

I have ridden this trail from Falmouth to Chickies Rock and back again. Beautiful. Easy ride. Avoid weekends if you can as it gets very busy. My husband uses a mobility scooter and th trail is a great one for people with such devices.

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Paved meandering trail with scenic riverviews with gentle hills and curves

February, 2021 by captinbandwagon

The trail is paved. In places the trail is straight and others it has small hills and gentle curves. The trail gets beside the river, goes by farmland, and through the woods. Its really a wonderful bike trail.

Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail

Only biked the Northern End - PA state line into Maryland just terrible condition

February, 2021 by captinbandwagon

Biked the northern end from PA state line into Maryland a few miles. The trail condition is all dirt, with ruts and bumps and is just in absolute deplorable condition. Buy some gravel Maryland and smooth the trail surface out. The trail has quite a grade and is all downhill from PA into Maryland and could be quite nice if the surface were improved.
