Event comments

Going West from the Summit Bridge Trailhead, you will complete the Michael N Castle Trail after about 5.5 kilometers. You'll then enter Maryland and the Ben Cardin Recreational Trail for the final 3 kilometers to Chesapeake City. If you are doing the longest distance, 17 kilometers, you'll turn around and walk back to the Summit Bridge Trailhead. We'll have 5 and 10 kilometer routes, too, that will remain in Delaware.
