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.

Not the most relaxing hike ever. It goes right next to interstate I 95. It is not very well marked either.

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!

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

Beautiful green foliage! Nice inclines! Intersects with Disc Golf course. Hikers' warning: this trail wasn't clearly marked. Had to use the Alltrails app to navigate through. Well worth it! One of the pups favorite short hikes!

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!!!

Hard to follow the trail (blue trail). It went right next to the highway a few times, and we had to jump over a bunch of mud puddles!

First time visiting this park and we're definitely coming back. Lots of trails and lots of geocaches. Great combination!

nice aerial view of Newark and area. Near pump house you can see Delaware Memorial bridge towers. Also get mix of animals mostly Mallards and Canadian Geese. Spring time there are plenty of baby chicks!

Surprisingly nice view of Newark. The reservoir itself is pretty, the trail is very nice and marked with distances.

there is some good mountain biking here if you are a more advanced biker. lots of rooty and rocky side trails. good uphill climbs must have decent cardio. could give it more stars if the trails were longer. but if you look around there is some fun challenging stuff.

Very nice trails, clean, and well manteined, nice view at the sunset, lot of birds at the water, definitely will go back to this trail.

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

Hike here on a regular basis. Love it! Trails will give you a great workout! Offers a disc golf course also which is great but sometimes a little frustrating because trails run with the course and I always feel bad interrupting a groups effort in playing. Most groups are very courteous and all works out well! Would definitely recommend but be prepared to take time if it's your first time there. Great hiking!
