My husband decided he wanted to go on a bike ride for his birthday. We hopped on our bikes in Rehoboth and pedaled to Cape Henlopen State Park. The views along Gordon's Pond bike trail are gorgeous! We saw several bird species and a couple...More

This is beautiful hike or bike ride through Gordons Pond, through the dunes and into Fort Miles in Lewes. Make sure to stop every once in a while to take in the awesome scenery.

Well groom path with a section of boardwalk. Saw many birds. Unfortunately it appears that Gordons ponds caters to the bicycles. No information about the birds or any other wildlife or plants or trees. Being from out of state, we could only wonder what we...More

We are regulars to Rehoboth but always off season. Gordon's Pond path goes all the way to Cape Henlopen. It's a flat walk, with an overlook to look out over wetlands. The smell of pine and lots of great views make it a great place....More

Our 1/2 and Full marathon ran through this area and the views were just breath taking. It was very hard not to just stop and take in all that was going on. I will be back to walk around when we have more time

Interesting, scenic trail which was in good shape. The only negative was the parking fee during April when the entire parking lot was empty, double for out of state versus in state visitors. Understandable to a degree but why "bite the hand" that feeds your...More

Yes, the surface is suitable for road bikes. In years past, there were some very rough segments, but they have been repaired.
