We did this trail starting at the outlets in Rehoboth (large parking lot right next to Microtel hotel). The trail starts off in a pine forest with gravel (a little hard for my husband who has skinny tires!) then winds through a new neighborhood where you ride down the center median. Eventually you wind up in the cute town of Lewes. We decided to add to this ride and go to Gordon Pond loop (easy to connect. Just head towards Cape May Ferey/ Cape Henlopen. Everything is well marked and there are maps in strategic places. Loved this!!!
Rode from Sun retreats cape may wildwood. Rode to the Cape May zoo (free to get in, nice break and has food), nice flat ride, not crowded, not a lot of scenery about 20 miles round trip. However a lack of trees for some shade, so I recommend an early morning ride or early evening ride, mid day is very hot. Also, would be nice for some benches along the way. Ride it every time I am down here. Overall I would recommend.
It has been nearly 10 years since the trail opened. It is beautiful, but it really needs to be re-graded. I mean these crushed stone trails aren't going to last forever.
Parking in Dennis Township is very limited. There is an alternate parking lot off Hagan Rd and a good sized parking lot off Rt. 83.
This is a great trail, well maintained, connects to other trails and full of wildlife. I have walked biked and run this trail for over ten years and it's never crowded. There is a small parking area on the southern end at the Rt 10 trail head with direct access to the trail. It's my go to place to walk my dogs or a bike ride without traffic.
Very nice trail and view. Got to get the pack to enjoythis ride
Started at Sun Resorts Seashore and rode on the new extension just a little way past the zoo. I believe the extension connects with the Dennis Township bike path for a grand total of 13 miles.
This was a nice ride to do in the fall. The route mostly went thru wooded areas. It was an easy mostly level ride over a gravel path that sometimes got narrow between the trees. It was 4.5 miles starting and ending at the nature center parking lot.
Drove over from our home in Bridgeville, DE for a short, scenic ride this morning. The trail going upstream (north) from the Marina is paved. One short section crosses over to the east bank of the creek and returns via the E. Central Ave vehicular bridge. Markings or directional signs for the continuation of the path are lacking, but we figured it out.
A short way above the return to the west bank, we encounted a section of flooded path due to the high tide but we continued on to the loop at the northern end of the path.
Returning to the marina area, we took the path downstream (south) under the MD 318 bridge. The path here is poorly maintained crushed stone and seriously overgrown. The flooding along this stretch was even worse so we weren't able to continue on to the very end.
Still the path is a nice, short ride (or walk) that offers peaceful views of the creek. We were even afforded a close encounter with a Great Blue Heron we somehow snuck up on along one of the wooden sections south of Rte 318. Hopefully, the town can find some money to put into maintaining/improving the path in the near future.
It is a nice smooth ride but there are a few concerns when crossing some roads on the trail. One, in particular, is where the homeowner along the trails decided to line his property right up to the road with Bamboo. So dense that the vehicles or bikers approaching the crossing have no view of oncoming vehicle traffic or walkers until they are on the very small side lane. Other concerns along the path are a few sharp turns where near SHGC where after heavy rains you can see the runoff of crushed shells or sand where you can easily lose control even during a low-speed turn. Not enough location markers.
Brush is cut back away from 8ft wide paved path. Flat surface, easy walk, run, bike.
Nice bike path leading to Cape May.
