Great Bike Trail

This was a great bike trail! The pond was very pretty, with the ocean in the background! If visiting, you must take a bike ride on this trail!

Beautiful, clean beach with easy parking access, uncrowded and clean porta johns. Have been here many times over the summer months and in Spetember and it is never crowded.

Great for bike riding and walking. Bring insect repellent and check for ticks when you leave. Great views, birds, the ocean. Can go all the way to Lewes.

My wife and I had planned to bike a nearby rail to trail but instead followed a recommendation from the hotel to bike 2 miles from the hotel to the nearby Gordons Pond trail in the state park. It offered the best scenes from a bike trail and the trail was in perfect condition with crushed stone surface and a... More

We frequently bike the "Loop" and back. Always good birding on the ride through. Bike to the Watch Tower and climb it!!! You can make a day out of it. Biking and climbing, then beach! Sounds like heaven to me. The elevated trail is definitely a very neat addition.

We biked on our cruisers from Cape Henlopen State Park using the connecting trails to get to the Gordon's Pond Trail. We are not serious bicyclists but we needn't be worried. It is a beautiful, flat trail through the marshlands, around the pond with views of the WWII fire towers along the beach in the distance. It was magical. Lots... More

I've spent 25 years of "summer" at this beach. There was a time when I could actually surf there. The bottom was flat and smooth. Not now. Although the beach is very wide and sandy, the sand is dredged sand. It's more coarse and not as fine as the sand used to be. Year after year, Nor'easters have pounded the... More

This was my third trip to Gordons Pond and again was not disappointed. I've walked through and around it twice; taking the scenic route on the beach on the way back to make a great 6 mile loop. I even found a giant conch shell and a seahorse! Just recently we did the bike trail from Rebohoth to Cape Henlopen... More

Take the bike trail or walk. Either way you will enjoy wetlands with bird watching, walking on Boardwalk trails, or riding a bike, there is room for all. It is a wonderful and worth the time thing to do. The trail leaves the pond and continues into Rehoboth. It seems so peaceful and nature pats you on the back! Wonderful!
