Paper Mill Park Connector Trail

Organization: Delaware Trail Spinners

Year: 2009

Amount: 10000

Status: Project complete

Type: Bike path/trail

Address: Paper Mill Park, New Castle County, MD

The Delaware Trail Spinners received a $10,000 grant to help build a section of natural-surface trail connecting Middle Run Valley Natural Resource Area and Paper Mill Park. This link will serve as a gateway trail, introducing new riders to mountain biking and setting the stage for trail expansion into neighboring White Clay Park. It will also help reduce car traffic at Paper Mill Park, as riders will be able to access the park safely and easily by bike. The grant will complement significant in-kind contributions and volunteer trailwork as well as funding from New Castle County.
