Expand Trails & Pathways

A Leader in Developing Trails and Pathways for Delaware’s Communities.

Delaware Greenways has been involved with developing walking and biking trails for over 25 years.  We are working on many projects to develop trails and pathways throughout the state.

In addition to our other work in trail development, Delaware Greenways has formed a planning coalition to develop a larger Northern Delaware Trail network funded by a generous grant from the William Penn Foundation.  These new trails will connect communities and important places like our beautiful parks and natural areas and Pennsylvania’s Circuit Trail.

A Look at What Else We Do to Develop New Trails

  • We educate government officials and others about the benefits of creating more trails and pathways.
  • We push for more funding and improved regulations and processes.
  • We feed ideas for new trails and pathway projects into the government process.
  • In some cases we take on specific trail projects.  We work with government agencies and private land owners to piece together segments of land that link together to form new trails.
