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

All walkers love this beautiful scenery of Gordons Pond. Especially in the "non insect season" like the fall. We have walked many times in the summer, but bring your insect spray. It is still a great walk. You'll see a lot of wildlife including deer.

This trail is a hidden gem. It is level (what isn't) and loops around the Pond. You would think that you are a few hundred miles south, looking at the pine trees and marshes. There is an elevated platform for viewing the birds, with an interpretive sign identifying some of them. After circling the pond, the trail becomes an elevated... More

Two weeks ago we vacationed in Rehoboth Beach during the last beautiful week of summer. My husband and I have been to Rehoboth Beach many times but never before biked deep into Gordon’s Pond. It was such a great experience. The trail is easy to ride and the scenery is so different from the beach and town. We were surprised... More

Gordons Pond is a beautiful pond with an amazing scenic views. Try to check it out at sunset for stunning peaceful calm views that I will never get tired of. It is a wonderful way to end a day at the beach.

This is a scenic trail in great condition, actually 5 miles for the round-trip but you can walk or bike through the State Park and put in many more miles, or walk through the sandy woods, stroll the beach, and see military history, many birds, dolphins just past the waves from shore, and beautiful vistas, foliage, and wetlands. Bikers should... More

We walked the length of the Gordons Pond trail and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a decent length and has quite a few people on it, so if you expect the trail to yourself, you will be a bit disappointed. And by trail, I mean paved roadway. You definitely have to stay alert, as there are a lot of bikers... More
