“Locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Gordons Pond or Whiskey Beach as the locals called it several years ago is located at the north end of Rehoboth. The beach is very diversified, so be prepared. There is a beach and a walking trail, I suggest you only walk the trail in the early spring of fall.....bugs. Parents beware, there are no lifeguards. Have fun

“PATHS AND TRAIL AT NORTH END OF REHOBOTH BEACH!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

You can walk on the inland side of the pond or bike, there are factful signs along the way describing the towers, the horseshoe crabs popular to our shores and veiwing stands too. Watch out for ticks when they are prevalent....perfect area to pick up a few!

“Excellent trail - a great way to spend a beautiful sunny day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

You would never know that a hurricane was on the way - we had gorgeous weather on the Friday before Hurricane Sandy.

Nice trail, deserted on this day. My only complaint was that we did not see as many birds as I had hoped.

“A Nice Trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The trail to Gordons Pond has been improved over the years and is now a really nice walk. The downside is that there are now more bikers and runners. The birding is excellent in spite of the traffic.

“Uphill Both Ways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Although we didn't actually get out to the pond, we did make the ride out to the park entrance on our bikes. We have ridden it before and swear it's uphill both ways.
