Everyday Adventure Awaits
The 6-mile scenic Junction & Breakwater Trail extends from Lewes to Rehoboth Beach for walkers, runners, and riders.
Not only does the trail offer access to Lewes and Rehoboth, bargain hunters will love that the trail runs directly behind the Tanger Outlets. There are many scenic spots along the route, most notably the gorgeous wetland views from a refurbished 80 foot railroad bridge circa 1913. You will enjoy views of wetlands, open pasture, and cornfields during your hike. Hawks, geese, deer, squirrels and other small woodland animals can be spotted on the trail. There are several benches positioned along the trail to rest and watch nature. View Trail Map
