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.
