Michael N. Castle Trail at C&D Canal Opens

Oct 18, 2013 -- 6:22pm

The ribbon was cut today to open the new Michael N. Castle Trail on the north bank of the C&D Canal.  Governor Jack Markell and state officials were on hand for the ribbon cutting of the $6-million Michael N. Castle Trail.  This is part of the Governor’s First State Trails and Pathways Initiative.  The trail stretches nearly 9 miles between the southern end of the Branch Canal to the Summit Bridge.  The trail is multi-use – and designed for pedestrians, bicyles, fishermen and equestrians.  Castle helped to initiate the trail project in 2004 when he served in Congress.  This is just part of the Castle trail – when completed it will extend 16 miles from Delaware City to Chesapeake City, Maryland.
