This walk weaves around a mile-long tidal pond and ends at the ocean, offering arm’s-length views of more than a dozen species of shorebirds. Crouching near the great tidal pool known as Gordons Pond, you watch from behind the rushes as a great blue heron prepares to strike a fish at its feet. When it does, the commotion sets a dozen plovers into flight. As you follow them, you notice a small plane in the distance. It will be flying beyond the sand dunes, out over the ocean. This is your only clue that you’re just a couple of beach miles from busy Rehoboth Beach. Otherwise, it’s you and the shorebirds —and the foxes that hope to feast on them. Special considerations: Some areas of the preserve are subject to closure during nesting season. Check the trailhead kiosk. For much of the hike, there is no shade —a hat is advisable.
