This is a review not so much for Gordon's Pond but for the opportunity it affords for a fabulous biking adventure. Pick up a bike in town at Seagreen Bicycles and then make your way the mile or two north to enter the Gordon's Pond area. Rminded me very much of Chincoteague island - peaceful tranquility that makes you feel... More

Would recommend this path for walking and biking. It is a newer bike trail in southern Delaware but it is a hard surface and easy to ride and the views are beautiful. Have seen snowy egrets and lots of osprey nests. You can hear the ocean on the other side of the dune. Recommend for everyone who wants some fresh... More

I usually visit Gordon's Pond during the off season. In winter it's a great place to bird watch and a take a quiet walk (though on holidays and weekends it can be busy). The graveled, flat path between Gordon's Pond and Cape Henlopen is 5 miles round trip and open to foot travel and bicycles. There's an observation deck overlooking... More

Prefect day to walk the trail at Gordon's Pond- the improvements and connection to other trails is amazing. We saw lots of wildlife and enjoyed the 55 degree day here on the beach.

My husband and I biked this trail from Cape Henlopen to the Rehoboth boardwalk. Nice wide trail, beautiful scenery. Several benches along the way to rest or just enjoy the view. Good trail to take into the boardwalk and have lunch and back again.

Gordons Pond has a marvelous nature trail that is man made through wetlands and marsh areas. You can opt to walk along the beach to return to the parking lot. Upon entering the trail we saw Bald Eagles in flight. Many bikers and others take advantage of the trails.

Gordon's Pond is in Cape Henlopen State Park. There is a superb bike path, that now takes you all the way to Lewes. The scenery is just gorgeous and serene, and if you are lucky, you can see Bald Eagles ! We love Gordon's Pond, for all the bird life, and just the beauty at every turn.

The beach at Gordons Pond is in the Cape Henlopen State Park (fee). Beautiful beach where dogs are allowed and no lifeguards. Not usually way busy like the other area beaches. There is a biking trail with beautiful views that begins there and connects with a trail into Lewes. Watch out for the serious bikers who race on the trail.... More
