Do yourself a favor and rent a bike and ride through the State Park. The Gordons Pond trail is easy and simply gorgeous. Lots of shore birds, including egrets, sandpipers and osprey. We saw an osprey nest with a hatchling. Go further and see the Great Dunes and the (defunct) army base. Much fun and beautiful views.

This bike trail was great. Wear sunscreen and bring water. Well worth it - we are not avid bikers but did the whole trail. Lots of places to stop. Some shade but mostly sunny. Definitely worth it!

Locals suggest this beach over the touristy boardwalk. I tried them both and agree with the locals. They do rent umbrellas and chairs.

After years of biking through Lewes to get to Cape Henlopen, I was thrilled to find that the bike trail has finally been built between Gordons Pond in Rehoboth and Herring Point in Cape Henlopen. Gordons Pond offers an elevated outlook point, and it is from this spot that the 3-mile connector trail begins. Most of the ride is in... More

During our most recent trip to Rehoboth, we spent a morning riding our bikes out to Cape Henlopen and Gordons Pond continuing onto Herring Point. This was a very easy, mostly flat, ride with plenty of opportunities for watching wildlife. At one point we stopped on the trail to watch the birds and a lone deer made its way across... More

Enjoyable time. Beautiful views. Well-groomed trails. Nice to experience nature away from the hustle and bustle of Rehoboth Beach. We were biking during late morning and early afternoon and it was hot. Bring water.

You'll want to keep hopping off of your bike to take pictures of the dunes, marshes and fort. It is short enough for families and long enough for exercise cycylists to make a couple of roundtrips. Just gorgeous!

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.
