Scenic wonderland

Excellent trails for biking and walking. Easy to maneuver with a stroller. Lot of waterfowl to see. You might even see a bald eagle.

Gordon's Pond is part of Cape Henlopen State Park. This part of the beach is less crowded and quiter. The only con is that there are only pota-potties.

Gordons Pond is a birders paradise; accessible from Cape Henlopen State Park - it's a walk in the park - literally. A raised boardwalk between wetlands area leads to the pond. Benches provide a welcome respite along the way. Beach and wildlife views abound. Was able to walk this walk with my husband in a wheel chair. Highly recommend!

Gordon's Pond is a gem of nature tucked in between condos and a beach on the Atlantic Ocean. You can walk, run or ride a bike along the paved path that follows the edge of the large pond. We find the winter the best time to visit when the area around Rehoboth Beach is "closed for the season". We stroll... More

Pack a lunch, check the air in your bike tires and peddle on over to the Cape Henlopen State Park for a beautiful easy ride to Gordon's Pond. Pack your binoculars for bird watching at the observation point half way though the ride. You're sure to be in for a treat

Gordon's Pond is a large pond located in Cape Henlopen State Park. It sits behind the park's Atlantic beach and doesn't appear to have any connection to the ocean. A very good hiking and biking path meanders along the landward side of the pond for about 2 1/2 or 3 miles and offers scenic views of forest, marshland and ocean.... More

Although people tend to think summer is the best time to visit a beach resort, don't stay home just because it's cold or rainy. Gordons Pond, and all of Cape Henlopen State Park, have something to offer every day. OK, it might not be an opportunity to soak up the sun, but the vast unspoiled vistas are interesting and beautiful... More

I run and bike the Gordon's Pond trail almost every day. It's so beautiful. There are all types of wildlife. I always see all different types of birds and sometimes deer. I like that there is a waterview, nice trees and the bridge is really neat. I sometimes do a big loop from Rehoboth to Lewes and back and it's... More
