Georgetown-Lewes Trail

Simply a beautiful and well maintained trail

September, 2021 by dfink4437

Recently relocated to the area and I couldn’t wait to explore the bike trails and learn a bit more about the area. This trail is magnificent!

Prickly Pear Trail

Peaceful and pretty

August, 2021 by keylights

I’m staying in a beach house in a community across from the park entrance on the Coastal Highway. The written review is accurate. Nothing challenging, entirely flat. I’d say about 90% of the entire loop is in shade under the trees’ canopy. Walkers and bikers, but not crowded on a week-day mid-afternoon. Fun diversion from the beach. Four stars because it goes by fast on a bike passing mostly light forest, with one water view. Did two loops. Peaceful and pretty…

Easton Rails-to-Trails

Great for walking

August, 2021 by zwmt6fsw9v

I really enjoy walking the bike trail. People along the trail have been very friendly. I would love for more trails to be installed in Easton. It such a quaint town. As far as the comment about trash. It’s not below me to pick up from litter bugs. I carry my trash picker on every walk with a bag. There are plenty of trash receptacle along the path. Earth day is everyday! Love the beautiful trees and plants along the path.

Dennis Township Bike Path

Nice, easy flat ride

Assateague Island Bike Path

nice bike ride

July, 2021 by kitkat5578

Always a breeze, crossing the bridge is the best view of OC. Saw 4 wild ponies grazing, on my ride, right on the bike path… deer were all around as well. Wish it was longer ride and went by the beach !!!

Michael Castle Trail

beautiful trail

July, 2021 by millercamema1_tl

One of the nicest trails we’ve ridden along the C&D canal. Start at Shaffers Canal House Restaurant and ride on blacktop trail. Beautiful scenery! Ice cream shop along trail, or restaurant half way or if you make it to Delaware City, be sure to eat at Crabby Ducks on water!!!

Michael Castle Trail

Chesapeake City MD to Delaware City DE

July, 2021 by boncelet

Combine the Mike Castle trail with the Ben Cardin trail to go between Chesapeake City MD to Delaware City DE, a distance of about 15 miles. The trail runs along the north side of the C&D canal (Chesapeake bay to Delaware river). It is asphalt the whole way, but you can take short gravel excursions if you want. About midway, the trail deviates from the canal to go around a marina. This diversion includes some hills and hairpin turns. Be careful of your speed if on a bike. Other than these diversions, the trail is flat. It can be windy near the Delaware City end (the eastern end).

Lums Pond State Park is just to the north of the trail. It has camping, hiking, and a lake for boating (but not swimming).

Suggested restaurants include Schaeffer's Canal House in Chesapeake City, Grain H2O at the marina midway along the trail, and Crabby Dicks (end of Clinton St in Delaware City--with a great view of the Delaware River).

I like to start at one of the parking spots along the canal and ride the roundtrip (about 30 miles). I get lunch at one of the restaurants.

Middle Township Bike Path

Beautiful and safe!

June, 2021 by beanceromous

This is awesome! I start at the very beginning at route 109 in Cape May and go all the way up to where the back entrance of the county park is. GREAT workout and so peaceful!

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.
