The Pomeroy Trail, scheduled for completion in fall 2012, will be a nice addition to the UD and Newark running environment. It runs along part of the old Pomeroy Railroad.  It links the James Hall Trail (the paved trail that runs parallel to the Amtrak lines) to Creek Road.  Its construction is the reason for the heavy equipment in the woods between UD’s Laird Campus dormitories and Creek Road. The southern end of Pomeroy Trail abuts the James Hall Trail, about 100 meters east of South Chapel St.  The northern end of the Pomeroy Trail is at Creek Road, at a bend (“the ‘S’ curve”) where the old railroad once crossed a feeder stream to White Clay Creek.  About 1.7 miles one way.  Map:
