Junction & Breakwater Trail

nice trail

November, 2016 by mjcjnk

First 2 miles is paved the rest in well pack crushed stone. Nice scenery and finish your experience at the Rehoboth board walk. Plenty of restaurants and shops

Junction & Breakwater Trail

Great Trail with lots of places to stop

October, 2016 by lkregecz

I really enjoyed riding this trail today. I parked behind the Tanger Outlets and rode to Lewes. Lewes is a quaint town with lots of little shops and restaurants. I then continued on to Cape Henelope State Park. Stopped for a walk on the beach. Then rode back to the other end of the trail in Rehobeth. Make sure you stop for a drink at Revelation Brewery at the end of the trail.

Junction & Breakwater Trail

October, 2016 by pinkhouselady1

we were in Rehoboth and looked for a trail. There was free parking behind the outlet mall that connected to the trail. rode all the way to Lewes. trail is in excellent condition and has a few street crossings but not difficult to manage. made for a great ride.

Prickly Pear Trail

Nice trail for family

September, 2016 by mtmcfarland

My family of four with two young boys (7 & 8 years old) completed trail and we all really enjoyed it. Lots of covered portions and a large portion had crushed rock

Loblolly Trail

Great trail for nature lovers

August, 2016 by timmunson

This is one of the nicest trails my wife and I have ever been on. Beautiful path through the woods, lakeside views, very little change in elevations. Well maintained and not much traffic on the trail. Loved it.

Junction & Breakwater Trail

Spectacular trail

August, 2016 by silviagroman

Beautiful views of salt marsh, corn fields and wooded areas. The meandering trail was infused with fragrant scents from flowering plants. We started at the outlets and rode into Cape Henlopen Park, completing a 17 mile circuit. I never imagined the natural beauty tucked away on this trail.

Gordons Pond Trail

Very nice riding trail, very well done

July, 2016 by jcphenry

The Gordon's Pond trail is a pleasure to ride and is thoughtfully designed and carefully maintained. It is an excellent example of how a park trail can be built so as to minimize harm to the park environment and to provide its users a high-quality outdoor experience. The surface trail is built on a winding low earthen berm with a fine gravel surface and over the wet marsh areas, is served by a raised trestle built of steel and wood (with water draining and slip-resistant deck panels and side railings with observation turnouts). The structure is of very fine design and materials and does not intrude upon or diminish the natural beauty of the salt pond. The rest areas at Herring Point and at the park entrance off Ocean Avenue in north Rehoboth Beach have clever and convenient bike self-service installations with pumps and tools. I have enjoyed riding the Cape Henlopen State Park trails for several years and the Gordon's Pond Trail is a high point in that experience. If you are only going to ride in one area, I recommend this trail.

Prickly Pear Trail

Nice little escape

July, 2016 by cbauermann

Why I haven't ventured onto this beautiful and peaceful trail before now is beyond me. I rode my trail bike and I could have spent a few hours exploring this trail and the numerous offshoots. There is something here for all users. And as a reminder to all cyclists, this is a recreational trail with limited visibilty on turns, so mind your speed. Really enjoyed the sections of single track. Hope to return again on my next trip to Bethany.

Prickly Pear Trail

Prickly Pear / Fred Hudson Trail

June, 2016 by dillar

We started this trail on the Fred Hudson Trail at the corner of Central Avenue and Fred Hudson Road just west of Bethany Beach. There is a nice paved path (8'-10' wide) separate from the roadway along Fred Hudson Road. At McCoy's Way, the path crosses the roadway (nice marked Crosswalk) and enters into the woods on a small bridge. The little sign "Authorized Vehicles Only" is deceiving, but this is the trail and about 10 yards into the woods there is the information board with maps and info!
The trail is elevated above water level and then takes you into a dense pine forest with a packed sand trail cushioned by pine needles. Perfect surface for MTB and Hybrids. The trail winds through the woods and the surface changes to crushed cinders and gets wider. It meets with the Prickly Pear trail after about a mile at the Hickham Road Trailhead.
The Prickly Pear Trail is a oval 3.5 mile loop with one side of the loop a packed cinder trail about 10 feet wide, through a shady pine forest. At the north end there is a connector trail to Rt. 1 just south of Ocean Ridge. The return leg is a packed sand dual track trail through open meadows and forest.
Now all that is needed is a bike lane along Central Avenue for the short distance between the Assawomen Canal Trail and the Fred Hudson Trail!



Cape Henlopen State Park Bike Loop

Cape Henlopen Bike Loop

June, 2016 by dillar

Great paved trail around the Cape Henlopen State Park! A few small hills, but otherwise flat. A mix of shade and sun, this trail also connects to the Gordon Pond Trail to get you into Rehobeth Beach to the south. Lots of wild life, and the view from the Fort Miles battery is worth the small climb up the feeder trail.
Also, the feeder path up to "The Point" will reward you with fantastic views of the Delaware Bay and the Dunes of Cape Henlopen

Gordons Pond Trail

Gordon's Pond Trail

June, 2016 by dillar

Awesome trail, and hats off to Delaware State Parks for this one. Our trip started in Rehobeth Beach and we rode to the Gordon Pond southern trail head. It was well marked and we found it easily just past the park entrance. The surface is a fine crushed cinder trail that 28cm and 35cm tires rode smoothly on. About halfway through we hit the elevated section that took us over the dunes. Nice views from the overlooks. At the end of the trail, we connected with the Cape Henlopen Bike which is a paved 3 mile loop around the park which we circumnavigated back to the Gordon Pond trail to come back.
Recommendation....take water, most of the trail is out in the sun and it could be brutal in the heat of summer.
Extra feature...bike fix-it stations at both ends with air and tools!
