Brief Project Description
The Broadneck Peninsula Trail is a hiker-biker trail that will ultimately connect the B & A Trail to Sandy Point State Park with a spur to Bay Head Park. The Trail will cover 9 miles mostly along College Parkway.
In addition to the local transportation and recreation benefits of this project, the Broadneck Trail also has national significance. The American Hiking Society has included the Broadneck Trail in its vision for The American Discovery Trail; a trail that will extend from Point Reyes, California to Cape Henlopen, Delaware. The Broadneck Trail’s ultimate connection to the B&A Trail will also make it part of the East Coast Greenway, another national trail extending from Maine to Florida.
