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.

Took my kids lots of cool things to see during the hike from nature to ruins of old houses.

Fun and a nice workout.

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

great trail. great workout.

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

The trail is great for a brisk walk and open nature, but it wasn’t very scenic. Still a great escape for any Delawarean looking to get out of the house!

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

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

Nice meandering with minor elevation changes.

Not a bad trek. Lots of mountain bikers to look out for

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

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!

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

I grew up in Newark but never ran any of these trails. Wow! So much fun. Well-marked and maintained. Beautiful and green. Loved it!

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!
