Great trail through the woods but the constant hills make it pretty challenging.
Nice loop around local park. Very busy with walkers every time I've ever been there.
Great trail by bike. Very shady. Not too hilly
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!!!
They just repaved the new castle side and it’s great!
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.
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
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.
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.
Flat, well-maintained with very little road biking. Other bikers are very friendly, and the views are beautiful.
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.
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.
