Description

Added by Abby Shepard

An easy, flat, paved trail that is good for hiking or biking.

The Michael N. Castle Trail (known locally as the Mike Castle Trail) is a 19.7-mile trail in northern Delaware along the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. You'll get great views of the canal and the bridges. 

The trail is flat and paved, making it a great pick for biking. The trail is one way, but can be accessed at multiple points. I prefer to start at Biddle Point, but you can also start in Delaware City or at Lums Pond.

The trail is named after a former Governor of Delaware.
