and also add another mile and a half from the end of the gordens pond trail to the center of town in rehobeth. I'm in Cape May and we're on this trail all the time, if you don't have a bike there is a bike rental right at the ferry terminal in lewes, you can find buy one get one free walk-on coupons to the ferry sometimes but if not it's $18 per person round trip, with or without a bike, If the round about distance of 8+ miles, one way from the ferry to rehobeth seems too much just do a day trip to Lewes, just take a right when you get off the boat and go to Lewes, it's about a mile each way, very do-able even for a novice and there are plenty of places to eat, cocktail and shop, a great day trip either way you go! and I'll just throw this in, if you like Mexican you have to eat at Agave in lewes, some of the best mexican food and margaritas ever, anywhere! I kid you not!

My husband and I just rode this trail 2 times this weekend. We recommend bringing your own bike or renting from Atlantic cycles in Rehobeth for the ride. They have great prices and nice bikes! This trail will definitely give you a nice workout! Beautiful trail!

Nice trail. Very little elevation change. At the Henlopan side, there is a very good raised deck trail, which is almost 1/2 mile long. Saw some birds and a Red Fox! Some benches are placed at various intervals. Do beware on the two observation platforms, there are wooden stops across them. There is an elevation change on both sides. On one of them, this is not obvious.

Nice trail anytime! Can be hot in summer months as not much shade, but great views of WWII Towers. Connect with Junction Breakwater Trail for nice 16 mike loop to Rehoboth and Lewes.

Great trail. 2.7 miles from parking at Herring Point to pavilion at Gordon’s Pond. Nice trail with short boardwalk over marsh. You can just reverse and go back or do the shorter return along the beach. Fantastic hike!! Lots of MAMILs. Middle aged men in Lycra who do not share the road well. Sometimes rude and dangerous behavior.

The Gordon's Pond Trail surface is improved with gravel and bridges. It's well suited for walking, trail running and mountain biking. The trail starts in scrub pines, and then travels through a salt marsh. It was overcast for our hike, but normally the trail would be full for sun for much of the hike. There were port-a-pots at the trail head parking area (Herring Point).
