As of Summer 2014, the bicycle trail in Gordon's Pond has been extended, allowing cyclists to ride from Rehoboth to Cape Henlopen State Park (or the reverse). Most of the trail is still graded and unpaved, but there is a section of beautiful "boardwalk" over wetlands and through forests and dunes. There are two pull-offs where you can sit and... More

Go early in the morning less jogger, walkers and bikers. We rode from Dewey to Gordon's Pond, through Cape Henelopen State Park on the new and improved bike trail at about 8:30am. Though the trail was well used by walkers joggers and bikers, it was still a quiet and tranquil.

This is a nicely paved trail. But be warned of a few things: (1) there is very little shade, (2) there are many more bikers than walkers, (3) it is not a loop. So for our family (who walked) it was not very enjoyable. The bikers were constantly whizzing by, there was no escape from the sun, and my kids... More

Walking or biking Gordons Pond has always been great. You are in the middle of a large preserve surrounded by nature and wildlife. Now that a new paved trail exists, this is a much more wonderful experience. The 2.6 mile trail extends from Gordons Pond over to Cape Henlopen State Park. The added trail allows you a much broader view... More

It's a few miles from Rehoboth ave. But once you get there it is well worth it. Only problem I had to turn back 1/2 way because there were no bathrooms.

Gordon's Pond trail is a great way to bike to Rehoboth from Lewes. Excellent views of dunes, pond and wildlife. We take the return trip on the Junction and Breakwater trail, which is more shaded and cooler, and now less people as more seem to be using Gordon's. Only warning is that on weekends it can get crowded especially entering... More

We rode from Port Lewes to Gordon's Pond, through Cape Henelopen State Park on the new and improved bike trail at about 8am. Though the trail was well used by walkers joggers and bikers, it was still a quiet and secluded feeling. The ramp to an over look on the edge of the pond is a lovely view of the... More

This is Delaware wetlands at its best. Anytime if the day is good but morning or dusk have colors. Every season is amazing there.

We had a wonderful time at Gordons Pond this week. Beautiful beaches, and wild life. We played and sat on the beach, hiked, biked and paddled. The wildlife is amazing...deer, heron, egrets, hibiscus, gulls, turtles, etc. We love the trail that goes to Cape Henlopen. We had heard from a Park Ranger about the Hermit of Gordons Pond. One night,... More

I do the drive on beach access through Gordon's Pond. It's easy and within walking distance to the walk ons. Best of all, it's dog friendly.
