A great place to walk, job or ride bicycle. This trail runs parallel to route 1 from Lewes to Rehoboth Beach. It is very well maintained. Beautiful scenery along the way with benches located several places if you want to take a break and relax.

This trail runs, with a few extensions, from Lewes to Rehoboth Beach thru forest, marshland, and a few suburban housing areas. Fortunately a dangerous section along a narrow bendy road has been bypassed so the whole length is now off-road. It connects into Rehoboth Beach (south end) and Cape Henlopen State Park (north end), both with their own trail extensions,... More

It is a wonderful ride, under tree cover half of the way. Just excellent and safe . You can also ride around Gordon one and make it a 20 miler .

I've lived @ the beach for 30 years & I love to hike, bike, run & take leisurely walks. The Junction & Breakwater Trail is just the place to do any & all of those things. Rehoboth Beach can become a madhouse in the summer months, but this trail transports you to peaceful & quiet. This 6 mile trail is... More

Great, quiet ride, easy and flat trails. Enjoyed biking to Lewes through here, just a couple of spots where you have to negotiate car traffic.

We are not spandex bike riders, but we can ride a moderate trail. When this first opened we rode this trail a few times, but haven't been on it for a year or so. We we're pleasantly surprised to see the trail is now better connected to Lewes and has improved signage and maps at entrances. The trail is gravel... More

We LOVE it here. We make a point to bike on the trail whenever we are in town. We do a loop from Lewes to Rehoboth, then thru Henlopen entering at Gordon's Pond and thru to Herring Point or "the dog beach" at Henlopen. then back to Lewes.

This trail is fantastic. It is flat, wide, with a good surface and well maintained. It works its way through cornfields, woods and over marshy glades. The views from the wooden bridges are terrific and worth stopping at. It feels like you are in South Carolina instead of Delaware. There are frequent mileage signs that keep you updated on progress... More

This beautiful, pine-studded trail winds through Cape Henlopen State Park next to wetlands and cornfields. This trail is in part crushed limestone and asphalt, but be careful there is some rocky parts. We biked from Rehoboth and was able to follow the signs to this trail easily.
