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

I was viewing a number of shore birds. Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets and Dunlins. A Northern Harrier gave us a show. This is park of Henlopen State Park with great wide open traile appropriate for walking, biking and running.

Though there are no lifeguards, the sheer beauty of the sand and dunes make this a great alternative to the frenzied nature of downtown Rehoboth beaches. The only drawback is the cost of parking. But, if you bike in you'll enjoy the day for free!

The trails are wide and the views of the water pleasantly surprise you around each bend. For running, the paths are soft and safe. This is a great place to take a long jog, walk or run. Even with lots of people on the trail,...More

If you're in the area, don't miss the Gordons Pond Trail! Walk or ride your bike to Lewes. Go early, and you'll have the trail to yourselves..except for the wildlife. Beautiful at sunrise or sunset...

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