We love the trail!!! What a smart move for the towns. An old train track converted to a trail that takes you from Lewes to Rehoboth. It's very scenic and easy to ride on bikes or a good hike if you're going by foot.

We were looking for someplace other than the beach to walk (windy and our feet/legs were much tired/sore from previous beach walking). This was a bit of a drive from OC but a nice drive.
We had some description of where the trail heads were and thankfully a map (with not many road names - thankfully I could match the map up to our GPS and I found the parking (Rehoboth end) for the trail.
Unfortunately we were only about to do about 1/3 of the 5 mile (one way) trail. It was very nice though, level, partially sunny and partially shaded (wouldn't want to do it on a HOT sunny day). Very easy walk, nice views along the way. We walked to the first scenic overlook. Beautiful marsh, beautiful. It would be a great bike ride, what fun it would be to do the whole 10 miles by bike :). We had hoped to drive to the Lewes end and walk to that scenic overlook but we didn't have time that day and then had to leave due to the incoming Nor'easter... :(
Dislikes: Do watch for dog poo along the side of the path :( There is a leash law, but I'd be more interested in the people cleaning up after there dogs.

Beautiful ride, little to no hills, perfect day trip activity! We loved seeing more of the area and getting in a little exercise too.

I did this trail with my 60 year old mom an and it was great. It is mostly shaded so it can be done on a hot day. It is flat so all ages re able to complete it. It is scenic so that you can stop and look at the animals as you bike. It is also not overcrowded so it can be romantic and private. I recommend you rent a bike and so this

We rented bikes from Atlantic Bikes on the boardwalk and peddled to the entrance of the trail about 3.5 miles away, the trail is off of Hebron Rd in Rehoboth. The 3.6 mile long trail is mostly crushed stone it is made up of a forested area of oak, hemlock and pine and Hawks and geese can be spotted in the air, and deer, squirrels and other small woodland animals share the trail. The trail includes an 80-foot long railroad bridge originally built in 1913 that crosses Holland Glade and provides beautiful views of coastal wetlands. If you like nature give this trail a try, you won't be regret it!
