Rehoboth Man Pleads Guilty After Creating A Bike Trail In State Park

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del. - A Rehoboth man has been arrested, after allegedly making his own bike trail on state owned land.

Delaware State Park Rangers say an investigation into an illegal bike trail constructed in Cape Henlopen Sate Park, lead to officials charging 51-year-old Jeff Clayton. He then pled guilty to three counts of illegal remove, cutting, or injuring trees and shrubs, illegal use of a park area for activity other than intended, and illegal altering of park property. Clayton was fined $1,140 restitution and court costs, and ordered to have no contact with any Delaware State Park for one year.

Officials say State Park Rangers found the construction of the mountain bike trail, near the Junction and Breakwater Trail. Posts on social media about the development and construction, reportedly lead to Clayton. Park officials estimate that around two acres of natural area in the park were disturbed, with a total of three miles of trial, including four bridges in the wetland area.
