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.

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

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

great trail. great workout.

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

Great trail with mild elevation. Takes you through a beautiful wildflower area.

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!

Great trail on a rainy day.

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

Great woodsy hike! Nice inclines. If you've got puppy company, watch out for oncoming bikers!

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!!!

Nice 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

I did this trail today (along with Whitely Farms Trail) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was so peaceful. I will be back (sooner rather than later).

great trail to extend your time on the loop

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.
