Our trip to Gordon's Pond was lovely. We stay in Rehoboth each summer, but this was the first time we took a family bike ride. The owner of Bike 2 Go recommended this low mileage, picturesque ride and it didn't disappoint. The trail comes to an abrupt stop, but my understanding is that it will be extended.

Nice trail for viewing nature. It is a long ride but there are areas to rest and pull off for families.

A couple of miles from the craziness of Rehoboth Beach is a beautiful bike trail through Cape Henlopen State Park. There are many signs of the old Army base that used to be here-- concrete bunkers, artillery pieces, etc. The WWII observation towers are fascinating. They look like grain silos, but were actually used by lookouts watching for German warships... More

My son and I found that renting a bike at the beach and riding to Gordons pond was the highlight of this years vacation. We enjoyed the quality time together and the views of the homes, the pond, the parks, everything was just fabulous. We will definitely be doing this again !

Gordons Point is one of the most beautiful bike trails with scenic views all along the trail. Lots of wildlife and places to stop for photo ops. We enjoy stopping at Herring Point between Rehoboth and Lewis and taking in the view of the ocean. It's just breathtaking.

Rent a bike in town, and cruise over to Gordon's Pond and the nature refuge. A great excursion for walkers, runners, or biking.

We biked everyday of vacation in Gordons Pond. Couples, families and individuals will all love this great path with opportunities to explore views of the ocean and climb a tower. We biked from Rehoboth to Lewes and then shorter routes in the park. Go!! It's a true find.

My husband and I rode the trail around Gordons Pond on our bikes. We had a great time. The trail is very well maintained with lots of places to stop for photos and breaks. It can be crowded if you don't get out there early!

What a gem at the beach! I love to bike around Gordons Pond! We actually biked from here to Rehoboth Beach. It is about 5.5 miles one way but relatively flat. Beautiful marshes, birds and nature abounds!
