With storm damage repairs almost complete, DNREC plans
to reopen southern section of Gordons Pond Trail this week

DOVER (March 1, 2016) – Repairs are nearly complete on a 2.5-mile section of the Gordons Pond Trail in Cape Henlopen State Park that had been closed last month due to damage associated with the Jan. 22-24 winter storm that struck Delaware’s coast. The storm rendered the section of Gordons Pond Trail, south of the end of the elevated boardwalk, unsafe for public use and closed it while repairs were made. The trail will reopen Friday, March 4, DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation announced today.   

The Gordons Pond Trail was completed in 2014 and consists of a 2.5 mile stone-dust trail and a half mile section of elevated boardwalk. The trail brings bikers and hikers through a previously little-known area of Cape Henlopen State Park. With repairs made and the final section of the trail completed, the Gordons Pond Trail will be part of an 18 mile circuit that includes the Junction & Breakwater Trail and surface roads in Lewes and Rehoboth Beach.
