As others mentioned, paths are not very well marked. However I kinda like this. Just grab one of the paper maps at the trail head, and follow the disc golf holes, you won’t get lost. Very light traffic and tons of path options make it an enjoyable spot.

Excellent excellent trail, it’s very flowy for biking fast. Marked at every intersection for great navigating. The skills section is just reopened.. it’s like an amusement park for bikers... Love it!!

Took my dogs today and it was a nice peaceful mini hike! The trails aren’t marked great but they’re pretty cleared off and there is a dog park and play ground as well!

nice ride big hills

Not bad has a little of everything very easy to follow

They need to mark the trails better! Hiking overlaps bikes and runoff ways.

Beautiful trail and fun for bike rides. Went hiking recently with my family and dog and found more than one tick on each of us.

Paved loop around a reservoir. First 1/4 mile is up to reach the loop. Paved trail. No tree cover, so can be brutal on hot days. Nice, pleasant walk we have taken with our kids. Good family walk as is stroller friendly.

Lots of terrain options.

Trail has potential but just not there markings are bad no sense of direction once in and on top of that way to easy to get lost I’m a evening day rider and just got home and it’s 1030

It's a 1.8 loop around the reservoir, but that did not include the long incline you need to walk to get there.
If you walk the pavement up the hill and don't take the grassy shortcuts turning left will get you a 2.0 mile walk, If you take the path straight or to the right it's a 2.2 mile walk.
There are lots of benches on the way up and on the top, and don't forget the suntan lotion on the sunny days.
This is my favorite walking trail, because the water reminds me of my boating days as a kid, and the view of Newark especially when the train goes through the town of Newark it reminds me of a train model store but in real life, because you are so high above the city.
Go you won't be disappointed!

So close but yet so far from reality. Nice place to get lost

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!
