East Newark is just over a 20-minute drive from Wilmington, and the trip is definitely worth it to visit the James F. Hall Trail with your dog. This trail was once an abandoned rail trail that was converted into part of a network of trails spanning across America. These trails are excellent for walking your dog, jogging, and biking. The James F. Hall Trail is a 1.8-mile trail that has a whole lot packed into it. The path is paved, and along the way, you and Rover will come across playgrounds, soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and three city parks!
