The trail is very nice and a great place for long runs. major issue finding parking to start the trail (finally parked in parking lot behind blue rocks stadium but took 45 mins to find it) the part of the trail that is just before New Castle is very poorly marked.

Great, well lit paved 1.75 mile trail loop for walking or running. Great option for running in the dark during the winter months.

Very nice park and trail. The trail is not well marked but it really is a paved trail through an old estate. The Mansion has some interesting architecture. Walks in late fall early winter are so nice. Insect world is not as active

on Walking Dunes Trail

walked part of it on a cold Thanksgiving weekend. beautiful

Easy trail that is paved. Good for dogs. Hill is great for incline! And also leads into two separate wooded trails

There's nowhere to park and its on a busy street.

Would be much better if it wasn't clear that residents have gotten to it

The gravel trail is wide and smooth, with little elevation change. Part of it is a raised boardwalk. The trail passes through salt marshes, along the western border of Gordon Pond, and through upland forest of pine, juniper, and oak. Very pleasant and easy. Connects to the bike loop trail in the northern end of Cape Henlopen STate Park. Hint: park in the free lot at Deauville Beach, about a mile south of the southern entrance to Cape Henlopen State Park, and bike in from there - save $5 ($10 out of state) park entrance fee.

Very quiet place to hike and enjoy the view. I grew up in those woods before park takes over.

Easy. Great with dogs and kids.

Really nice walk, quite short but dogs would have a blast. Great view near the shore with a lookout!
Awesome for taking family photos

I love Cape Henlopen, it has to be the coolest place you can camp. Even though its a small state park, you’re right by the beach. So you can camp and walk over the dunes and you’re at the beach in 10mins. Its so peaceful at night with the wind, crickets, and the sound of the waves. And you can always find a camp ground year round.

Beautiful, shady ride through pine trees on a flat trail. Perfect for kids!

Beautiful but incredibly buggy in July/August. I was bitten even while running. Views of the water are nice alongside heavily wooded tree canopies.

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!

it's a great ride! if your coming off the ferry add about a mile and a half to the actual trail distance, very well maintained trails, takes you just about to the main drag in rehobeth,

Paved loop around a reservoir. First 1/4 mile is up to reach the loop. Paved trail. No tree cover, so can be brutal on hot days. Nice, pleasant walk we have taken with our kids. Good family walk as is stroller friendly.

on Riverview Trail

This park is well paved and in good shape. The views of the river and boats is a nice to see. Yes, the park is close to the Amtrak and interstate and there is some noise but what do you expect, this isn’t in a national park. The land is a capped dumped site. Good use for land that is basically unusable otherwise.

Great trail for road biking! It's on the canal with great views. The ride can be a bit challenging when there is headwinds, but still an amazing time.

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!

This is a well marked path that is shared with cyclists too. It goes past several World War II structures and offers a lot of variety in terrain. Don't forget your bug spray!

This little trail is all paved and A very odd location. You have a view of the river and ships coming in which is cool however the other side is the highway. Not very clean but a small paved loop we used to teach our kid on his bike.

It's a 1.8 loop around the reservoir, but that did not include the long incline you need to walk to get there.
If you walk the pavement up the hill and don't take the grassy shortcuts turning left will get you a 2.0 mile walk, If you take the path straight or to the right it's a 2.2 mile walk.
There are lots of benches on the way up and on the top, and don't forget the suntan lotion on the sunny days.
This is my favorite walking trail, because the water reminds me of my boating days as a kid, and the view of Newark especially when the train goes through the town of Newark it reminds me of a train model store but in real life, because you are so high above the city.
Go you won't be disappointed!

Well marked highpoint. Its in the middle of a neighborhood so parking is hard to find in the area. USGS marker is also not easy to find. Best way to find it is to just continue towards th firetower after you get to the official sign designating the high point (its hidden in the dirt). In general, people around the area are very nice and are willing to help you if you're lost
