Bikers ride along the Mike Castle Trail (WDEL/File)Part of the relatively new Mike Castle Trail near the C&D Canal in St. Georges will be closed to pedestrian traffic starting Friday.
DNREC's Division of Fish and Wildlife says the trail section, located east of the Biddle Point parking area, won't re-open until the fall.
The next phase of the Castle Trail includes building up and black-topping roadways. DelDOT says the trail will see heavy truck traffic and it's safer to close the trail during construction.
The Castle Trail from west of Biddle's Point to Summit Marina will remain open to visitors, with access from the Biddle's Point and St. Georges parking areas.
