Description

This connects the Wilmington Riverwalk Trail to Battery Park in New Castle. Most of the trail is paved, with one long stretch of boardwalk-type surface through the marsh near Wilmington. There are a few scenic views of marshes and rivers, but most of the trail is not interesting. I like that it covers such a long distance.
