Fun trail, Specifically the beginning. When you enter the trail to the right side, there’s an early drop with jumps and obstacles. Super fun. Definitely a trail for skilled riders.

Fun trail. Very up and down throughout. Some spots are tough to get up because of incline degree, trees & roots. Not many muddy spots but it hasn’t rained in at least three days, take that for what it’s worth. I wouldn’t really consider this an easy trail for someone less skilled on a bike. There are several spots that have a sharp drop off to the left and/or right side depending on direction. For a skilled person, this trail is easy but does require effort. All that being said, I would do it again and I had a great time on this trail.

Great trail! No complaints at all. Beautiful scenery. We logged 7.2 miles, and even paused and forgot to restart the recording, so it was even longer, but followed the map exactly. Not sure where AllTrails gets 6 miles but it’s so pretty you don’t mind the extra mileage!

We did a quick evening hike starting on the Lenape trail and using the Earth Day trail as a cut off for a 2 mile loop from the parking lot. This is a well used trail fun to walk with the kids especially because they loved the little bumps and bumps.

Perfect combination of twisty fast single track in woods with gentle doable climbs & some scenic open fields.

Nice trail. Glad we had this app to follow because it wasn’t well marked like others.. We found a lot of ticks on us when we got back though.

We entered and exited via the upper pike creek spur, and did the loop to the cutoff, which was about 2.5 miles. A nice hilly loop along the creek, though traffic noise does make its way through the woods a bit.

Pretty good overall. Even on an off day you’ll run into bikers; I’d imagine even more on a weekend. There are a few points where the trail is hard to locate especially in the fields sometimes it isn’t well marked. I would definitely do again.

Nice trail, though the first and last bit (if you take the field spur) are in the sun. We did the cut off halfway through and the field spur and we were well above 2 miles, perfect for me and my 3 boys to get tired. We will definitely do this loop again.

This was our first time here we were looking for some geocaches and found one of the two we were aiming to find. My six-year-old and three-year-old were able to complete our loop but they were definitely tired at the end

Good trail plenty of shade and good views.

Fun muddy trail but it had rained hard day before. But enjoyed

trail was good. normal dirt or mud not over grown. I took cut through and it made the trail 2 miles for my jog from parking lot by bathroom

PenDel Trail has a lot of shade and is mostly flat. One creek crossing due to washout of the main trail.

It's ok if you want to get some cardio in. Nothing special. Lots of geese and their droppings

I give this trail a 4 because of the views. If you like a variety of fields & meadows, and also woodsy canopy, you will like this. You can easily connect to the Whitley Farms trail, and could even cross over that trail to connect to David English to give yourself more of a challenge . It's beautiful year round, and just a word of caution - avoid the "Skills Trail" section - it's for bikes, and if you are trying to use the bridges in that section it's not big enough for you and a bike. Someone will have to wait!

Nice trail took both my dogs. App helped in unmarked areas

Our go to trail in the area. Shaded the whole time except one short field. You follow along the creek for about 1/2 the hike.
