Hike the Cape Henlopen State Park Loop

Delaware Cape Henlopen State Park Loop

Added by The Outbound Collective

A little bit of everything can be had here: hiking and biking in the woods, swimming on the beach, wildlife sightings, and historical sites.

This well maintained park has both diverse activities, such as biking, fishing, camping, and swimming, as well as varied landscapes – beach, woods, marsh, and hills. Accordingly, look out for wildlife at this park.

The loop through the park is accessible to all levels, and includes a bit of military history along the way.

Fun Bike ride!

There are great bike trails to explore. Walk out on the boardwalk of the bath house to see a great view of the beach. We had a blast & the bike rentals are free of charge.

Best Bike Trail In Delaware

This is a really fun bike trail! Brand new boardwalk type track for a lot of it and then trails along the ocean and ponds. You see a lot of birds and wildlife. By far my favorite park in Delaware. Also very easy so you can bring kids and you don't need a mountain bike but it helps.
