Our History

History of the Lewes – Rehoboth Connection

The Lewes-Rehoboth trail connection didn’t happen overnight. It began back in 2003 when Bill and Bryce Lingo and family donated land for development for a trail. Their aim was simple: to give back to the community which they loved so much.

Over subsequent years, the Lingo family and others such as Paul and Roger Townsend and Eugene Bayard, made donations of numerous acres to create a safe, attractive trail which helps to showcase the natural beauty of the Southern Delaware region. From the initial land donated which runs through Canal Corkran, to the final piece of the 16-mile puzzle donated in 2015, the Junction & Breakwater Trail, the goal was always to create a resource the community could treasure.

This loop helped to connect beaches, playgrounds, shops, state parks, and sites of historical importance, making the region an ever more popular location for day trips and vacations.

Encompassing Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Cape Henlopen State Park, and Georgetown, the trail is now a welcoming escape at any time of the year, whether you want a relaxing stroll or a picturesque bike ride.
