      I love this trail. I hope to see more like it, but on more level ground, in the Hockessin area.

      We currently find ourselves driving to the Michael Castle Canal Trail in St. Georges, to Glasgow Park, or the James Hall Trail in Newark to find flatter, PAVED trails. A paved “Rails-to-Trails” project in Yorklyln/Hockessin would be a huge asset to the community.
