Description:
20TH HIKE ACROSS DELAWARE
HIKE THE ENTIRE WIDTH OF DELAWARE

Check in at the Gazebo in Delaware City between 8:00 and 8:45 a.m. when boarding begins for the bus ride to the starting point at the Maryland state line near Chesapeake City. We will then hike along the north side of the C&D Canal to the Delaware River. The route lies mainly on land designated as the Canal Wildlife Zone. At the 8-mile checkpoint at St. Georges, food, drink and toilets will be available, and provisions can be made to transport people back to their cars.

East of St. Georges, the route leaves the canal, enters the woods, and circles a Marina. Then it returns to the canal and continues toward historic Delaware City on Clinton Street. The trees and shrubbery sporting their fall foliage, combined with the opportunity for a close view of boats, ships and barges using the waterway, make for a pleasant journey along the trail.

The fee is $13 for WTC members and $16 for nonmembers, which covers the cost of shuttle bus transportation, the restrooms, a t-shirt, and refreshments (including 20th anniversary cake!).
