    This is my most favorite bike route in the area. The trail is paved for 15 miles and goes from Delaware City, DE to Chesapeake City, MD. Both towns are old historic areas and the trail is paved the whole route and runs along the canal. Mostly flat with 3 or 4 short climbs as you go around so water overflow areas of the canal. Lots of barges, historic rail bridge, birds, and boating.
