    Solid for running

    If you find yourself in one of the nearby communities in Bethany Beach, the only options for running are the beach (which can be heavily sloped most days) or the main highway. I recommend running down Coastal Hwy to the prickly pear trail loop. It offers tons of shade and is a great change of pace from the main road or the waterfront. Not too crowded, but keep in mind that its dual use so you may encounter cyclists. The trail is packed sand/oyster shell/light gravel.
