Yorklyn, DE — On Monday, Aug. 20, Governor Jack Markell, DNREC Secretary Collin O’Mara and other local legislators joined the Friends of the Auburn Heights Preserve in Yorklyn for the grand opening of the new the Auburn Heights Trail, the first multi-use trail of its kind.
The event marked the opening of a one-mile loop trail and the completion of the first phase of the trail system. It is the first of its kind to have been funded, designed and constructed as part of the Governor’s Trails and Pathways Initiative, which was launched last October.
