Governor Markell previews his vision for a long term “Statewide Trails and Pathways” project for Delaware that would establish an interconnected network of pathways and trails throughout the state to support non-motorized travel and recreational trails that could be enjoyed by Delawareans and by visitors.
Governor Jack Markell and other state and local officials announced their visions and support for “Sussex Outdoors,” a southern Delaware initiative that seeks to get families and children outdoors for physical activity and to create healthy lifestyles, at a summit on Thursday at Trapp Pond State Park.

“As somebody who bicycles most of the length of the state each year, I know the incredible beauty Delaware has to offer, particularly when it’s not just rolling past your car window. This trail offers a new way to see some of our natural beauty up-close. It gives local businesses a chance to connect with some of the new visitors the trail will bring and connects our state’s recreation opportunities more closely together,” Governor Markell said.
