We tooks our bikes on the trail in the worst weather -- rain, wind -- and still had a great time and saw lots of birds. Beautifully kept wildlife preserve and easily bikeable from downtown Rehoboth Beach.

I love going to Gordons Pond. It's refreshingly natural and lacking commercialization. It is so relaxing to be there.

This trail is very well done, long if you want a long ride, level if getting around is difficult. Nice scenery and wildlife. Definitely a great way to spend an hour or two while in Rehoboth especially if you have a cool or cloudy beach...More

Very nice trail w/great views of Gordon pond and the Beach. Great spot to bird watch. This trail connects Rehoboth and Cape Henlopen State Park... & can be used as part of the 16 mile loop using the Breakwater Junction trail.

Just two miles north of the noise and bustle of the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk, is the trailhead for the Gordons Pond bike trail. It's a quiet area, with acres of low marshy wetlands teeming with birds. The bike trail connects all the way to Lewes...More

If you're really ambitious you can go all the way to Cape Henlopen State Park. Lots of waterbirds to see - including a clapper rail that hopped up just as I turned around. Fair bits of shade if you go in hot weather as we...More

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