We always enjoy riding bicycles from Rehoboth out to the Gordon's Pond trail. The scenery is wonderful and we almost always see Bald Eagles in the trees. The ride the whole length of the trail is over three miles now.

I ride the trail around Gordons Pond everyday when I'm in Rehoboth and the weather is nice. It's a fantastic trail in and absolutely gorgeous setting. Always lots of people walking, jogging, and riding bikes out there. I also frequently see bird watchers out in the early morning. Great thing to do in Rehoboth in the spring, summer, and fall.

Briana from Fin's Fishhous Highway provided us with a great dinning experience and then gave us of few recommendations on what we should do while visiting Rehoboth Beach. She recommended Gordon's Pond and we had an incredible 6 mile hike through wet lands and finished the hike by returning on the beach side of the Pond. Great Bird Watching including... More
