    State committed to connecting communities with trails

    $7.5 million targeted for projects inside and out of state parks

    Cape Gazette — More trails connecting communities and parks – like Cape Henlopen State Park where prickly pear cactus were blooming in front of World War II fire towers in June – is the goal of new funding approved by the General Assembly.

    The concept of connecting Delaware communities with walking and bicycling trails is taking a big step forward this week. The General Assembly’s Bond Bill Committee voted unanimously last week to include $7.5 million in the bill to move several trail projects forward inside and outside Delaware’s state parks. At least half of that money is expected to be spent in Sussex County.
