First time to the trail, but it won’t be my last! Enjoyed the quietness, the sights, the bridges and the length of the Lenape Loop was perfect for me, my husband and dog. We’ll be back and will try the other trails also.

Fun and a nice workout.

Smells great. The smell of leaves from these trees makes it very pleasant.

It was a decent trail that could be marked better. Overall I don't regret going.

This was a nice trail. There are restrooms at the trailhead and lots of parking. I went on a colder day while it was snowing so there was not much traffic.

Nice easygoing hike well shaded and quiet

Not super scenic for hikers, but great trail for mountain bikers

Nice trail, well marked. No vistas, no real views. Not much hill climbing. Lovely hike for a hot day because its almost all covered, but take bug spray!

Love this trail. Did anyone else notice the old building near the trail? I think it might be an old root cellar? It's near where that "seat" is carved out of a tree before the long wooded bridge

The trail head and trail are well marked. It's good for hiking, biking and trail running. There is adequate parking and toilets. I would rate this easy, not moderate. It's mostly wooded, with a short stretch next to the Pike Creek, and a couple of short stretches with road noise. Fee area.

Love white clay! Some of the best mountain biking around!

It was a nice trail, looks like it's better for biking than hiking since that's what most people were doing. But, WARNING! Our group of four found a ridiculous amout of ticks on ourself after this hike! There is a portion where you walk through a field with tall grass so I assume thats where they are but it was really bad when we started picking them off our clothes (at least 10 between us).

I go here almost every day with my dog. I backpacked some mountains in Olymic national park and did this trail everyday before really was great to get me into shape! Wonderful spot!!!

Great walk not too hard. Able to do it with my 7, 5 and 3 year old

Really Nicely kept- lots of bridges and biking structures. Be careful with bringing a dog because the bikers go very fast on these trails! DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOG OFF ITS LEASH! not too much scenery

It was okay. Not if you were looking for a nice trail, but okay if you just want to get out in the woods.

Like James said, it is not really hiker friendly. Make sure you are prepared to navigate.

Perfect for a Sunday afternoon hike. Not too many people. Went with my husband and our 6 month old puppy and it was gorgeous. Will definitely do this trail again.

Good hike. Yes watch for mountain bikes there is only room for a single line on the trail. Many roots so watch your footing tripped a few times. But very pretty

Good trail nice hills to climb if you want to start getting used to going up hills and working to bigger things

Hidden gem for sure!

I ride here regularly, well maintained. great loop for a good 35-40 minute ride. foot hikers, please don't be intimidated, most riders. will (should) yield to you. Be sure to study the path, it interconnects with several other trails, easy to take a wrong turn.

Follow the back roads.

Easy trail. To make it a bit challenging you could move-off trail deeper into central woods towards the source of maplewood creek for a spectacular view of the falls.
