One of the best places to visit if you are looking to enjoy an outdoor adventure during your Rehoboth Beach vacation, Cape Henlopen State Park is home to many different trails, one of our favorites of which is Gordons Pond Trail. A tree filled path that explores both the natural and historical beauty of coastal Delaware, this trail is home to an elevated boardwalk with observation areas over the wetlands and two World War II observation towers along the beach.
It is also a popular spot for bird watchers to visit, as Gordons Pond Trail is located along one of the continent’s migration “super highways”. Always filled with a wide variety of waterfowl, as well as osprey and bald eagles that often make their nests in trees surrounding the path, the trail is a little over three miles long and is a great spot for a bike ride, thanks to its smooth gravel path and beautiful boardwalk deck.
Made from fiberglass and wood to allow plants to receive light and continue to grow beneath it, the boardwalk is one of the trails most exciting features that were damaged during winter storms this past January. Luckily, the repairs were able to be completed before spring’s arrival, and we are happy to hear that the trail was reopened last weekend – just in time for Beach View vacationers to enjoy the unique scenery, plant and animal life that is found along Gordons Pond Trail.
