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.

Well marked highpoint. Its in the middle of a neighborhood so parking is hard to find in the area. USGS marker is also not easy to find. Best way to find it is to just continue towards th firetower after you get to the official sign designating the high point (its hidden in the dirt). In general, people around the area are very nice and are willing to help you if you're 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.

A very nicely maintained state high point. Nothing too special about the area, but also gives an excuse to visit Wilmington, Delaware. High point is easily accessible and you can literally park right across the street.

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.

Not the most scenic of walks and gets crowded but does the job in a pinch. Nice loop and well maintained.

By the time we got to this pool they were all starting to look alike. The name, "Bear Swamp" is really cool.

This loop is closed off so you have to do it on a fat tire bike or in a big letter C to go by car. I loved the hiking trails too.

Maybe this was the best pool because it was the beginning of a long day of looking at them.

This park is a really nice family park. There is a 3 mile trail paved for running, rollerblading, walking and bike riding. There is also a short loop(maybe 1.5 miles) through the woods. There is an awesome dog park and this park is very pet friendly(we even saw someone walking their potbelly pig). Nice skate park, 4 different parks for children of different ages, tennis courts and basketball courts. There is still open space for soccer, remote controlled cars etc.... Picnic tables and pavilions. There is usually a food truck there and a ice cream truck during busier times. It gets very busy, but it is big.

This place has come a long way over the years. A great place to spend a nice day with the family. It can get very crowded.

When you are locating this highpoint it's a good idea to search with the gps coordinates which will take you right to it. Not much to say about it; just checking off another highpoint.

Paved, flat 2.6 miles course. Nice for short run or walking. I prefer very early morning. Park gets fairly busy. Great location and community area. Basketball courts, tennis, skate park, play ground, pavilions and plenty of parking. Nice hill for additional training or challenge. Safe park and well maintained. The entire loop has tenth mile markers that I find very useful for interval training.

It's surprisingly quieter and more peaceful than it appears from the main road. It's a full circle paved flat route. In the back corners, you don't even realize you're in a public park. Very safe during the day as there's always people using the trails. Multiple benches/resting points and ability to cutoff the hike half-way through as you park in the middle of the loop.

the main walking path is a very easy paved 2.7 miles but there are also trails through the woods that are still easy but also very pretty. besides the trails there are playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, a sledding hill, and soon a skate park
