A very nice ride on a bike trail about 5 miles each way from town. Lots of birds, herons. I would go early morning.

I had a lovely run on the flat, wide trail, wish I had my camera with me as the scenery is beautiful, there is a breeke to keep you cool and a few wild animals to keep you company!

Since our last visit in 2013 the Gordons Pond trail has been connected up to Cape Henlopen State park. I highly recommend this relaxed ride through the salt marsh and around Gordons Pond as an alternative to frying on the beach for another day.

We had gone to Rehobeth beach in the past and after being told numerous times about this beach we finally gave it a try. When staying in Rehobeth we will definitely be coming to this beach from now on. Plenty of parking (doesn't cost an arm and a leg either), beautiful scenery, very nice people, concession stand, not over crowded.... More

Loved the beach - lots of parking and easy access to the beach. We tried to go to Rehoboth but it was just too crowded, so we ventured further down the road and just happen to find Gordon's Pond and so glad we did. We will definitely be back!

The path around Gordons pond was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. We biked throughout the park and rested along way, taking advantage of the viewing platforms. Bring your binoculars! We were pleasantly surprised to see the new bridge that goes over the Marsh and brings you out to the beach. The path continues and even connects to the... More

On your bike. Get out of the town and onto the gravel paths leading into the reserve, where the ospreys nest, the herons strut and the blackbirds swing on the long grasses. My mother and grandmother used to walk their dogs here, and Gordons Pond remains a calm haven 55 years later. Bless the people who had the foresight to... More

We rented bikes in Rehoboth and made the ten to fifteen minute ride out to Gordon's Pond. The ride took us along some beautiful homes. After entering the park we walked to the beach and then rode the bicycles to the observation deck. Next time I will definitely bring binoculars to view the birds. The ride out and back was... More

We walked up the beach from the parking area then took the pond trail back from the point parking area and enjoyed it very much. The towers on the beach were interesting and there is a comprehensive interpretive sign about them on the paved part of the pond trail. It is a very easy trail with only one section that... More
