Nice trail that connects with any other trails in the area. It, and others could use the markings refreshed and/or replaced.

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.

It's not a bad trail. There can be heavy traffic. It's easy to get in and out from with lots of free parking.

Nice easygoing hike well shaded and quiet

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

Not the most scenic of walks and gets crowded but does the job in a pinch. Nice loop and well maintained.

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!

Perfect walk/run along a paved path with water views

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

Pro: Tons of activities for everyone and multi purpose trail

Cons: Can get a bit crowded and not scenic

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).

Nice walking or running trail never overcrowded but always busy

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!!!
