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.

We love pet-friendly Glasgow Park,six miles south of Newark, in the town of Glasgow. There are the red-lined trials, but there also the back trails on the north side of the Park that are are more wooded. Our favorite is the loop on the northeast side of the Park with lots of native loblolly pine, some of which are very tall.

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

Very easy, paved path. I’ve run here regularly for years, mostly because it’s close to my house. They’ve expanded some of the parking lots and improved the rainwater drainage, which had added some inclines to the path. But the people... there are a fair number of dog walkers, bikers, and runners here who are all very respectful. There also tends to be large numbers of people walking in groups who are completely oblivious to runners and frankly don’t care. Most of them will not move and you’re forced to go around. On-coming walkers see you and assume that you’re not going to go through them. It’s a bit frustrating for seasoned runners. However, this is a great park for beginners and highly trafficked, even after dusk. I feel comfortable running here after dark.

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

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

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 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.
