on Walking Dunes Trail

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.

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

Short and sweet loop. Great boardwalk trail. Definitely bring bug spray..

Short down and back, overlooks swamp area. Great birdwatching area. Bring bug spray!!!!

This trail is a great hidden gem in the Bethany Beach area. I discovered it while exploring the area on my hybrid bike. A pleasant, shaded ride through marsh an pine forest with some scenic breaks.

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.

I really enjoy walking on this trail

I wouldn’t call it trail running but I run this loop almost everyday in the warmer months it’s a really nice loop if you’re looking to run someplace and want more than just houses and cars to look at :)

Pretty much echo what others have said-weird location, nice view of the river, all paved and a flat weird loop. Probably wouldn’t do it again. I’m new to Delaware and wanted to try some different hiking spots, this is definitely not hiking but it’d be fine if you were just walking around especially with kids. They have little grills and picnic tables too

Visit often. Close to my house, nice hike.

Love it, just have problems with lines on bridge, makes me dizzy.

A very nicely maintained state high point. Nothing too special about the area, but also gives an excuse to visit Wilmington, Delaware. High point is easily accessible and you can literally park right across the street.

Love these trials. Not too far away from my house and my puppies love it too.

This trail is very easy and flat. I recommend it for all ages because it is very easy it is a nice walk.

I enjoy this walk because you can walk or bike along the Delaware river it is a nice walk but is very short and flat.

Very nice gardens also a unique history of the property. The property was owned by the DuPonts but now you can take tours of the mansion and walk through the Beautiful gardens. This walk is good for all ages because there is a enchanted garden for kids to play in. This walk is very easy.
