The Assawoman Canal Trail is a crushed stone pathway for cyclists and pedestrians that runs along the west side of its namesake waterway through Ocean View, Delaware. The canal was hand-dug in 1891 and played an integral part in the town's history, and the trail now allows residents and visitors the chance to contemplate the past while enjoying a pleasant stroll or ride.
The trail is managed by the Delaware State Parks system, which offers additional recreational opportunities in the nearby Delaware Seashore State Park, including the Prickly Pear Trail and the Fred Hudson Road Trail.
Parking and restrooms are available at the southern end of the trail, located on Town Road just north from Atlantic Avenue/State Route 26 in Ocean View. Please note that the state park charges a vehicle entrance fee.
