The twenty-eighth annual Hike Across Delaware sponsored by the Wilmington Trail Club took place on Saturday, November 4th, 2023. It was a spectacular fall day. Eager hikers registered for the event beginning on September 1rst and event capacity was reached by October 10th. Hikers walked fifteen miles along the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal across the entire state from Chesapeake City Maryland to Delaware City, Delaware. Participants came from several states to take on the challenge and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. All were grateful to find energizing refreshments at the ten mile marker and happy to rest tired legs and feet at the finish line. 28 Wilmington Trail Club volunteers shined a spotlight on the club demonstrating a recipe for success that includes selfless dedication and tireless teamwork. A heartfelt thanks goes out to all who participated in the event and to New Castle County Executive Matthew Meyer whose office provided a community development grant to defray costs!
The Hike Across Delaware is open to all interested members of the community. If you are interested, please mark your calendars and plan to join us for the twenty-ninth annual Hike Across Delaware scheduled for Saturday, November 2, 2024.
