New Member Hikes are on the second Saturday of the month, for new members and anyone considering joining the Wilmington Trail Club, as well as current members, walking at a moderate pace with an option to join the group for refreshments after. Everyone is welcome, whether you prefer to hike, bike, kayak, ski or back-pack.

Meet and be ready to hike at 10:00 a.m. in historic New Castle at the New Castle Court House Museum, on Delaware Street.  We will explore New Castle in all its spring glory- along the river, down untraveled alleys and into some beautifully tended gardens.  Afterwards, we will enjoy a late breakfast or early lunch at the New Castle Café. Although we will be walking on pavement most of the time, we may stray off the path so wear appropriate shoes!
