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.

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

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

Michael Castle Trail

Smooth and Safe

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.
