Good teaching grounds for kids, pavilion, restrooms, geocaching, playground.Not for distance riders, unless you want to bike in a circle over and over and over ... Not challenging. A couple hills. Disconnected from other trailheads.
This has parts that are next to roads like sidewalks, but most of it is entirely off road. Though most of it is wide and paved, there is a section that is slightly narrower and has a backed pulverized tiny stone which makes a reasonably good surface for my road tires on my hybrid bike. It will get your bike frame dirty from what gets slung by your front tire. The grade is just a little steeper than most rail trails, but it doesn't last that long. It goes though a large complicated intersection. The traffic light walk don't walk system works well.
This trail was paved, wide, unfortunately only 1.76 miles long, and entirely off road. It, however, connects to Pomeroy and Newark Rail Trail which goes a little less than 2 miles. There is an active railroad paralleling the trail (we saw two trains go by while riding our bikes). There were parks, playgrounds, ball fields, a skate board rink, and adult exercise equipment along the path. The hills on the trail were both gentle and fun.
My daughter took me for a bike ride and dinner for my birthday. I had no idea where we were going but it ended up being the Jack Markell Trail and I was blown away that I didn't know anything about this wonderful experience before this. It is amazing. So beautifully built and maintained. It went under and around areas I would never have biked thru. My partner and I are avid bird watcher/photographers and I can't wait for him to get his bike fixed so that we can take a leisurely meander thru with our cameras to see all the varieties of birds. The trail even goes thru the Peterson nature center!! Easy biking or walking. Also saw scooters and skateboards. Highly recommend!!
Great ride as long as you know the beginning and end points. I’m from Wilmington and had a bit of trouble figuring out where the trail ended at Battery Park! At the beginning the signs are not the easiest to find! However, the trail itself is in great condition and the scenery is very nice. I’ve run into several animals including deer 3x now. Great for nature lovers.
This is the way a bike trail should be done. It's only finished about half way to Georgetown as I write this, but they continue to make progress every winter. Flat, smooth, shady, well marked, and built up with stone berms and wooden fencing wherever there is any drop-off. I can't remember being on a nicer trail than this one. It is entirely paved, but keep in mind that if you want to connect near Lewes to the Junction and Breakwater Trail to Rehoboth, after about three miles, that trail is crushed stone. It's in good shape and beautiful, but you can't really do that portion on a road bike.
This trail was better than some of the reviews I have read! I am so glad we decided on this trail today! My daughter and I absolutely loved it! We rode our bikes, and others along the path were jogging or walking! A lot to see and read so it’s also educational! I highly recommend this trail for all!
Love how peaceful and serene this location is perfect for a walk/run or bike ride. Has wooded areas, water views, and open fields.
Made it out to this trail last weekend. While some areas did get a little crowded, was a relaxing and beautiful walk.
Wow! Walked about 1/2 the trail starting at Riverfront. I was amazed with the workmanship and appearance of this trail. Was very relaxing walk. We seen eagles and was lucky enough to spot the nest, baby turtles.
Down side lack of restroom, or signs to restrooms.
I was overall very impressed with the part of the trail we walked.
We enjoyed the whole loop
Had a nice view, not a bad trail
