Even if you don't have a bike, you can borrow one fro free. There is a $10 fee for out of state cars, but it is well worth it. Highlights are WWII observation towers, big guns, pristine dunes and views of the Atlantic.

Walked three miles of this trail as it is part of the Delaware Birding Trail and on of my favorite in Rehoboth. Plenty of birds. Nice flat trail that is great for everyone with fantastic views this will take you all the way to Lewes if you go the full 5 miles.

We went on a cold and windy long March weekend and it was still terrific, There are several quite different hikes to make: historical around Fort Miles and see the gun emplacements (and HUGE cannons including a 16 inch gun used by the USS Missouri in WWII), trails in the woods, walks along the ocean side and a very nice trail past Gordon Pond (3.5 miles each way). I liked the Gordon Pond trail so much, I got up early the next day and ran it. The park is VERY close to Lewes (2 or 3 miles) and is relaxing, interesting and a must visit if you are in Lewes or Rehoboth.

Cape Henlopen State Park is fabulous! In the off season there are no fees and few amenities, but welcome sights and sounds!
Wildlife and beautiful vistas are yours to enjoy through woodlands, beaches, and historic areas.

We chose a dreary, wet winter day to peruse Henlopen State Park and were wonderfully surpeised with the information we took away from there. In spite of the weather, learning about how fortified the U.S was on this Eastern seaboard was exceptional news for history buffs like ourselves. Our 17 year old loved the barracks, the high artillery weapons used to protect our land from ships and from the sea, and the huge bunkers. We would recommend this park for old and young alike especially history lovers. We didn't mind the cool weather as there were hardly any other sleuths at the park. We give this park a 5 stars and don't forget to stop off and see the little museum with fish tanks and reptiles.
