The Junction and Breakwater Trail is a five mile long rail trail located on the southwestern side of Cape Henlopen State Park connecting Lewes and Rehoboth Beach. It is the third rail trail built in Delaware and it is the longest in the state. Erika and Jeff check it out, see a short tour.
From the Delaware State Parks, this trail follows a section of the former Penn Central railroad between Lewes and Rehoboth Beach for approximately five miles, along an easy contour on a crushed stone surface. The trail is suitable for hikers, bikers, and strollers. It is accessible from the designated trailheads. Trail users will pass through mature hardwood and conifer forests and open fields, and will experience scenic vistas of coastal marshes at the Wolfe Glade and Holland Glade crossings. Interpretive signs provide opportunities to learn about plant and animal life along the trail. Please Note: Trail access in Lewes is from Kings Highway opposite the Cape Henlopen High School or from Gills Neck Road west of the entrance to the Hawks Eye Community. Rehoboth Beach access is from Hebron Road just off Route 1. No parking is available at these access points. We parked behind the Wawa and Kids Cottage in Rehoboth Beach, down at the end of Wolfe Neck Road.
While we visited in the start of the spring, check out a few photos from the summer time:
