4-C Bicentennial Trail

This trail was built as a partnership between the City, the County, Wilmington College and the Clinton County Trails Coalition. Built in honor of the State's Bicentennial (2003), it was laid out by trail advocate Lori Williams and designed by Clinton County Engineer Jeff Linkous. It is wooded, gently rolling and has three bridges. The westernmost bridge is the Boy Scout service project of Brice Carpenter. Another bridge, known as the "Farm Bridge", was resurfaced with the addition of handrails as the Eagle Scout project of Chase Yeakley. The west trailhead is at the Southeast Neighborhood Park with entrances/exits from Marlena Dr. and Paris Ave. The eastern trailhead is on Fife Avenue next to the Clinton County Engineer's office, 1326 Fife Ave. (across the street from David Williams Park). Parking is available at both trailheads on city park property. While scooter users regularly use this trail, wheelchair and scooter users are advised to use caution and discuss conditions with the City Parks Director (382-4781) due to the grade in a couple of places on the trail.
