James Farm Ecological Preserve
Ocean View, DE
Another can’t-miss for organic fun in Coastal Delaware? The James Farm Ecological Preserve. This hidden gem is located on Indian River Bay, a stone’s throw away from Bethany Beach. Here, you can traverse trails that wind through seven unique habitats, each showcasing the diverse beauty of the region. There are also many volunteer and educational opportunities. Plan your trip today!
Burton Island Trail
Rehoboth Beach, DE
The Burton Island Trail is a short trail around the island, offering great views of the inland bays, salt marsh, and wildlife. Burton Island is the largest island of many separating the Rehoboth Bay from the Indian River Bay. Charming raised boardwalks transport you over the salt marshes with open views of the bays. Keep an eye out for horseshoe crabs, osprey, and other marsh wildlife. This trail is best enjoyed in the fall, winter, or early spring. (Because summer is usually too buggy on the marsh to enjoy the hike!)
