Nice cool morning for a bicycle ride through Gordon's Pond. Absolutely wonderful nature scenes along the way from Rehoboth Beach to Lewes. Well maintained trail and since the path is fine gravel, not many road racing bikes coming through. Multiple places along the way to safely stop and enjoy the views. Great for a family bike ride.

We decided to take a hike here. It is very nice. Sadly for us, it was during those few weeks of the summer that were very hot and humid. Therefore, we were attacked by horseflies and mosquitoes. Got so tired of swatting that we left early.

My favorite beach in Rehoboth. Though I really would prefer not to let the secret out as the lack of crowds during the week is my favorite reason for going there.

Love how quiet this beach is. Dogs are welcome but must be on a lead. Actually saw dolphins a few times.

A pleasant ride along the "loop" path between Rehoboth Beach and Lewes will take you past some amazing vistas. Suggest early mornings in the summer. Take your time and enjoy the scenery!

Great place for a walk, run or bike ride. State park to state park is a good work out. Lots of wildlife scenery. It's about 3 miles each way. I love going out there as much as I can. I find the footing and flatness here better than the breakwater trail which I love as well. Can't go wrong. For... More

We rode our bikes from Reboboth Beach to Lewes via this trail and enjoyed the views the whole way. There are a number of old military installations and towers along the way to check out.
