There's a new trail that's great for biking, walking or running that offers a shortcut from Rehoboth Beach, around Gordon's Pond and up into Cape Henlopen State Park and its Fort Miles Historical Area. It's a much shorter trail than the alternative Junction & Breakwater Trail that's been extended further into Lewes, although that is also a great ride. You... More

Excellent place to bike around and spot birds and other wildlife; Well groomed bike and hike paths around the wildlife refuge. Go early in the morning for best experience.

Rode bikes here -- bikes are free from Atlantic Bikes when you stay at the Avenue Inn. Wet lands look more like Chincoteague. Lots of water birds. Take binoculars and camera. And bug spray.

Very lovely setting for beach goers as well as naturalists. Gordon's Pond offers a serene environment for those wanting to get away from the crowds of Rehoboth and Dewey Beach. The dunes are beautiful and the beach provides a quiet respite. The trail is great for walkers as well as bikers. Ornithologists will delight in the migratory birds who make... More

My husband and I rented bikes in Rehoboth and took a nice little ride out a bike path around the pond. Part of the path is a wooden bridge that goes out across the marshlands. We saw lots of birds and other bicyclists/runners. A fun thing to do in the early morning to get some exercise in during your vacation.... More

This is a beautiful walking/ biking and / or birding trail from the North shores area in Rehoboth Beach to Herring Point in Cape Henlopen park. Round trip is approx. 6.5 miles. Herring Point midpoint spot overlooks the Cape area where on a clear day you can see the tip of New Jersey! If you take the Gordon Pond trail... More

Gordons Pond is a great getaway from the hustle bustle of Rehoboth Beach during the peak summer weeks. It also is a respite anytime of the year. The bike path winds its way through a peaceful bird sanctuary that offers commanding views of the more rural aspects of this energetic beach town.Meander down the path that leads to Lewes and...

Our local friends took us to the Gordons Pond trail during a recent visit. We were very impressed with the new extension, which can be accessed at Cape Henlopen State Park and now means that you can walk or ride all the way from Lewes to Rehoboth via this trail around the pond. Parts of the new trail are on... More

Walked the whole trail both directions today and it was lovely! Not as shady as we had expected so we were sorry we didn't bring sunscreen. Lots of egrets spotted today along with their young ones. Many places to stop and rest or view the scenery. Walkers and bikers share the same path. Most bikers give fair warning of their... More
