This year the trail has been extended at the Lewes end. If you combine this trail with the Henlopen trail, you can do a loop that encompasses Rehoboth Beach and Lewes. The trail itself is cinder with the Lewes extension being paved. I enjoy the variety of scenery. There's shaded forest and expensive new suburban McMansions; lots of cornfields, too.... More

Great trail for all. Some areas are nicely shaded and there are areas to rest for those that can't ride the entire way.

Great experience. We took the ferry from Cape May to Lewes to spend the day biking. What an adventure! This is an amazing trail. What isn't well known --- you can actually do a 16 mile loop from the SeaGreen bike rental shop (there's two: one in Lewes, one in Rehoboth). It made for a fantastic day. Here's my recommendation....

I needed a place to take my dog for a long walk in the morning before heading to the beach. She was excited to be on this trail with the new smells and sights. I went early in the morning before it was too busy. My dog was interested in the bikers and runners; everyone on the trail was polite... More

This trail is great for all levels of exercise-flat terrain,shady most of the path and wide enough not to get in others way- a plus is the placing of benches along the way to allow of a quick rest. Don't miss this opportunity to go from Lewes to Rehoboth without worries for traffic!

If you are looking for a great 10 mile out and back run or a flat bike ride through some amazing scenery, be sure to do this trail!

Easy-going but picturesque. Nature plus town if desired. Good plan for Rehoboth to Lewes or reverse while grabbing lunch midway.

The junction and breakwater trail is an excellent opportunity to bike from Lewes to Rehoboth Beach or the other way around. Most is shady.

What a great way to spend a day at the beach away from the beach. Very scenic and relaxing. Bike or walk definitely a nice escape.

This is a triangular trail that goes from Lewes to Rehoboth by way of the Henlopen State Park, and it is a beautiful and flat trail. Only one stretch along the highway from Lewes to the state park is full of traffic; the rest is amazing—marshes, woods, open water, corn fields, canals, beautiful housing—all good. Best to have wider tires,... More
