Delaware Greenways

by Dave on June 22, 2008

As promised, CoastalSussex.com has the exclusive interview with Mark Chura, Executive Director, of Delaware Greenways.

Mark and his staff are working on an ambitious agenda including expanding the Breakwater and Junction Trail from Lewes to Georgetown. We wish Mark the best and look forward to a long-term relationship with Delaware Greenways. Below the video is a blurb from their website.

The first Town in the First State, Lewes is a charming nautical town situated at the intersection of the Atlantic Ocean and the Delaware Bay. Many shops and restaurants available for a relaxing amble around town. A walking tour highlights some of the town’s history.

Highlights:

City of Lewes – The Lewes Greenway and Trail Committee envisions a network of protected open space and pathways that link parks, natural areas, and historic sites throughout the town. A route has been established and Lewes Greenway sighs identifying points of interest are in place

Cape May-Lewes Ferry – the ride from Lewes to Cape May, New Jersey is just over an hour long. Bicyclists and foot passengers can purchase a round-trip ticket and enjoy an afternoon in Cape May (also a great town for walking!) before returning to Lewes. For information on Cape May-Lewes Ferry…
Cape Henlopen State Park
(EASY) – Cape Henlopen Sate Park encompass a multitude of natural and cultural resources and 13 miles of trails and pathways. A master plan for the park will guide the development of, among other things, additional trails and pathways.

Junction and Breakwater Trail (EASY) – a recent addition (and wildly popular among beach-goers), this trail has a northern trailhead near the historic Wolfe house. The current southern terminus is found off Rehoboth Avenue on Hebron Road (near the canal). Plans are underway to extend the trail north to Lewes.
