Please meet and be ready to hike promptly at 10:00 a.m. at Gordon’s Pond State Beach at the picnic pavilion at the far end of the parking lot. We’ll head across the marsh on the boardwalk, over some dunes, up to the lookout tower and come back along the beach. The hike will be 4-8 miles depending on the weather. Afterwards, we’ll have lunch at the new Dogfish Head Brew and Eats in Rehoboth Beach. If you’re interested, after lunch we can walk (about 2 miles roundtrip) on the new trail from the entrance to Henlopen to the Delaware and Rehoboth canal. There is no parking fee in February.
