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.

Trail Project Updates

  • Augustine Cut-Off Trail:  The City of Wilmington and New Castle County secured a grant from the Delaware Bicycle Council to fund a planning study for the trail.  Delaware Greenways looks forward to partnering on the next steps.
  • Brandywine Creek Greenway:  Delaware Greenways is partnering with Brandywine Conservancy to bring a 30-mile conservation corridor along the Brandywine Creek, along with its network of trails, into Delaware, adding 10 miles.  This 2-year project fits well within our vision of connecting everyone to where they want to go.  Learn More
  • Claymont to Fox Point State Park:  We are working with the Delaware Dept. of Transportation to get a planning study underway in a step toward adding this pathway to the Northern Delaware Greenway Trail.
  • 7th St Peninsula:  The City of Wilmington and Wilmington Area and Planning Commission (WILMAPCO) are developing a master plan for the Peninsula.  At a recent public meeting, trails were a popular choice to include in the plan for the area.  We look forward to lending our expertise in moving those trail projects forward.  Learn More
  • Commons Boulevard Trail and Harvey Hanna Trail:  Discussions are upcoming.  We’ll provide an update in the near future.
