Stayed at Cape Henlopen State Park and found we could connect the park trail, into Lewes (permanent pylons separating you from light traffic into town). There we connected to the Lewes-Georgetown trail for a short bit, then crossed Hwy 1 at the library to the Junction-breakwater trail. Rode into Rehoboth, where we were able to ride the boardwalk(after season, not allowed summer), then found the Gordon’s Pond trail (after a mile or so on residential road) back into Helopen park. Ended up with about a 19-mile loop! Nice shade and forest on the Junction-Breakwater trail, which is probably great for summer, a little cool in the shade in Nov.
Nice Ride through a State Park, I have been here on Many Weekday Afternoons after work & it has never been crowded. Main Trail Loops around Trap Pond & through the Campground, some Boardwalk, some Stone, Some narrower riding through the woods on Stone Dust. Plenty of other areas in the Park to ride as well. Easy to get 10 Miles in just cursing around the Park. Very Enjoyable
I have ridden this Trail many times as I live on the Maryland Shore & Go to Assateague often, I never added it here as it isn't a True Rail Trail but noticed someone had so I'll put my $.02 in. Very Flat, only hill is the Bridge over the Bay. Can be quite windy so I usually Park at Visitor Center & Ride south first as this is generally into the wind, but be sure to check the Flag when you get there as it does sometimes turn abound. Horses may be seen anywhere on the Island....you will see plenty of Horse Droppings! There are 2 Bayside Access roads which are worth a visit, there is also a Bike Trail in the State Park Campground Area that is easy to get to. It ends at a gravel Parking lot near a Construction access gate Midway down Bayberry Drive, so you can get from one Trail to the other & add some variety to your ride. No Ocean Views from the Trail but there are plenty of spots where you can stop in The National Park Campground Loops & walk up over the Dunes. Trail Ends at OSV Zone, which requires a Permit. I often Bring My Jeep & make a Day of it here, but it gets VERY Crowded on Summer Weekends. You can always Bike in even when there are Massive Summer Backups on the Road. Easy to get 10 - 15 miles in here if you get Creative.
I loved this ride. It is a great, well maintained trail.
It is a bit of a ride from our place in Selbyville, but it is well worth the trip to to ride the trails in the Rehoboth-Lewes area and avoid the aggressive drivers in our area.
I did modify the ride a bit. I started at the beginning of the Breakwater Junction trail and rode to Lewes. I did have to ride on the road for a short distance to get over the Rehoboth-Lewes Canal to get to Cape Henlopen State Park.
If you want a longer ride, you can connect with the Lewes Georgetown rail trail. I does not go all the way to Georgetown yet, but it will be a nice long ride when it is finished.
This trail is really beautiful. It’s hard to believe you leave the outlet mall and 30 seconds you’re on this beautiful secluded trail! Very well maintained. It was 3.8 miles from the Tanger outlet detour entrance to Lewes.
Visited the trail today at the chancellors run end after 0.36 of a mile the paved ground disappeared at the end of the Walmart (which put me in the street) and picked back up at the McDonald’s with no warning to trail users on how to connect to the other end. This was very confusing and interfered with my timed run. There are no proper signs welcoming you to the trail.
Recently relocated to the area and I couldn’t wait to explore the bike trails and learn a bit more about the area. This trail is magnificent!
Even after almost two years (of no reviews), the barn kitties mentioned in a couple of the earlier reviews are still there! I couldn't believe it! In fact, I thought, "there's no way those cats are there now", but there was something in the middle of the trail ahead...I thought it might be a groundhog, but it didn't move as I got closer. In fact, it was a barn cat, lounging in the sun, and as soon as I stopped, it sauntered right up to me and gave me so much affection! Never even wandered away! *I* was the one who finally had to leave. Also, another barn cat came sauntering over; it was friendly enough, but was easily bored, lol, and just as soon walked back to the barn.
As for the trail itself, it is still well-maintained (maintenance was even going on that day) and a pleasant ride thru country. I parked at the Charlotte Hall Library, which has a bathroom (important!). I live an hour away and I'd say it's worth the drive. You are not just biking/walking thru woods, so there is some variation in scenery; woods, farms, backyards, a couple of places with horses.
I’m staying in a beach house in a community across from the park entrance on the Coastal Highway. The written review is accurate. Nothing challenging, entirely flat. I’d say about 90% of the entire loop is in shade under the trees’ canopy. Walkers and bikers, but not crowded on a week-day mid-afternoon. Fun diversion from the beach. Four stars because it goes by fast on a bike passing mostly light forest, with one water view. Did two loops. Peaceful and pretty…
Tranquility at it’s finest! Love having this trail so close to home for the dogs too.
I really enjoy walking the bike trail. People along the trail have been very friendly. I would love for more trails to be installed in Easton. It such a quaint town. As far as the comment about trash. It’s not below me to pick up from litter bugs. I carry my trash picker on every walk with a bag. There are plenty of trash receptacle along the path. Earth day is everyday! Love the beautiful trees and plants along the path.
Always a breeze, crossing the bridge is the best view of OC. Saw 4 wild ponies grazing, on my ride, right on the bike path… deer were all around as well. Wish it was longer ride and went by the beach !!!
