We took an enjoyable hike on the path at Gordons Pond one morning. Most people were biking, but it wasn't a problem for hikers. The path is nice and wide. There a a couple of scenic overlooks with wildlife information. And benches to use for a rest.

With a 3.2 mile path, elevated and ash, this natural area is a wonderful combination of convenience and natural beauty. Along the migratory route for birders there are a variety of flora and fauna for anyone interested in escaping from the action of the area and enjoying a bit of nature.

Surprisingly nice walk through a bird lovers paradise. Does require an entrance fee. I did about 8 miles of hiking through beach and wetland environments.

I just started running here--been missing out! What a lovely run out and back on this trail with all the water and wildlife. Absolutely perfect, and the gravel trail is well groomed for runners/walkers too.

Every year we go to Rehoboth beach and take our bikes - a ride out to Gordon's pond and a bit of bird watching with the WWII observation towers in the distance. Then we head back and ride through town to the Breakwater Junction Trail to Lewes. This past year the Trail has now been completed across the Great Dune... More

Gordon's Pond is favorite stopover for migratory waterfowl. We have seen thousands of ducks coming in to feed. This visit the skies were full of snow geese! The state has finished a bike path that loops over to Cape Henelopen. We like the access but a little sorry to see such a high ended semi-paved elevated path instead of the... More

From the parking lot at Herring Point to the parking lot at Gordon's Pond and return is 5 miles. What better way to get in your exercise? Watch out for bicyclists, they can sneak up on you! Stay to the right when you walk.

Beautiful new bike trail in Cape Henlopen State Park. They could have made it wider. It really gets crowded with pedestrians and bicycles (they should make a special trail for the pros-they seem to get impatient with the tourists. Also, bicycle etiquette should be posted "on your left/right" needs to be used and understood. That aside, make sure to include... More

Until this year, the trail between Rehoboth and Cape Henlopen that skirts Gordons Pond was walkable, but virtually unbikeable - parts of it went across sand dunes, and other parts were very narrow, with patches of sand and boggy terrain. Now, there's a raised boardwalk on the northern stretch, and the narrow trail has been widened and finished with a... More
