Spanning just shy of 8 miles, the Jack A. Markell Trail, named after a former Delaware governor, connects the Wilmington riverfront with New Castle. The paved pathway was formerly known as the Industrial Track Greenway Trail after the old freight line on which the rail-trail is now built.
Highlights of the route include overlooks of the Christina River in downtown Wilmington, several scenic bridges, and a 2,300-foot boardwalk elevated over the marsh of the Russell Peterson Wildlife Refuge. The trail ends just north of Battery Park on the Delaware River in New Castle.
The trail is not only an important local connector, but is also part of the nationally significant East Coast Greenway, which will one day connect trails from Maine to Florida.
