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.

We biked the newly completed (6/14') trail from the Gordons Pond Lot (after biking up from the south end of Dewey). Great scenic ride with views of the pond, dunes, pines, wildlife, and beach. The 1/2 mile long boardwalk was very well done. The reward on the far end are the even more fantastic views from Herring Point, a bluff... More

Whether you like to bike, run or walk, this is a newly renovated route that you don't want to miss. The trail now goes from Rehoboth to Lewes, DE through the salt marshes just over the dunes from the ocean. The scenery is gorgeous and serene. The path itself, is well maintained, and easy to transverse. No steep grades until... More

A very nice ride on a bike trail about 5 miles each way from town. Lots of birds, herons. I would go early morning.

I had a lovely run on the flat, wide trail, wish I had my camera with me as the scenery is beautiful, there is a breeke to keep you cool and a few wild animals to keep you company!
