    DNREC has put together this awesome 5 minute video on Governor Jack Markell‘s First State Trails and Pathways Initiative:

    • connecting Delawareans to better health
    • connecting Delaware neighborhoods to parks, schools and local businesses
    • connecting communities to each other
    • connecting people of all ages…to the places they want to go

    Video Narrator: “Governor Jack Markell envisions a statewide linked network of trails winding their way from the rolling hills north of Wilmington south to sandy Fenwick Island.  And from the Delaware bayshore west to the Maryland line.”
