Assawoman Canal Trail Concept Plan

A group of local community leaders and area residents interested in expanding bicycle and pedestrian opportunities developed the Assawoman Canal Trail Concept Plan.

This work led to the 2015 opening of a 1.1-mile trail segment between Route 26 and Elliott Avenue along the west bank of the canal in Ocean View.

The Route 26 trail underpass and kayak launch at Town Road trailhead (Phase 2) was completed in the fall of 2020.

Phase 3 will explore the feasibility of continuing the trail along the east bank of the canal from Route 26 to Kent Ave.
