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.

I love this trail. It is poorly marked in a few spots. The wooded sections are cool and scenic. It is an awesome way to tour the largest pond in Delaware!

First hike with my 3 and 5yo. They did pretty well. I didn't do the full trail. Kids enjoyed where I could get their water shoes out and they played in a ankle deep stream for about 20 mins. They were also very distracted trying to pet all the dogs we passed.

This park is well paved and in good shape. The views of the river and boats is a nice to see. Yes, the park is close to the Amtrak and interstate and there is some noise but what do you expect, this isn’t in a national park. The land is a capped dumped site. Good use for land that is basically unusable otherwise.

Nice trail, shaded about 90% of the way. Could be better marked in spots. Flat most of the way, with a fair number of tree roots to navigate. Good trail for beginner mountain bikers.

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.

this is my go to trail. its easy enough to walk, but can be jogged on quite comfortably in most places.

My husband and I just rode this trail 2 times this weekend. We recommend bringing your own bike or renting from Atlantic cycles in Rehobeth for the ride. They have great prices and nice bikes! This trail will definitely give you a nice workout! Beautiful trail!

It was a beautiful day and the trails are well-kept. My dog and I loved it!

This is a well marked path that is shared with cyclists too. It goes past several World War II structures and offers a lot of variety in terrain. Don't forget your bug spray!

This little trail is all paved and A very odd location. You have a view of the river and ships coming in which is cool however the other side is the highway. Not very clean but a small paved loop we used to teach our kid on his bike.

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

Short and sweet loop. Great boardwalk trail. Definitely bring bug spray..

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. Very little elevation change. At the Henlopan side, there is a very good raised deck trail, which is almost 1/2 mile long. Saw some birds and a Red Fox! Some benches are placed at various intervals. Do beware on the two observation platforms, there are wooden stops across them. There is an elevation change on both sides. On one of them, this is not obvious.

Quiet, easy hike around the property of Lum's Pond. We enjoyed the quick access from our campsite.

Lots of great trails and beautiful scenery

Nice trail that connects with any other trails in the area. It, and others could use the markings refreshed and/or replaced.

Nice park and lots of hiking to do there. Would definitely go back and hike the other trails at this park. There are other activities to do there besides just hiking. Disc golf, GoApe zip lining.

Fantastic views and very well marked and maintained trails. Just gorgeous!

I really enjoy walking on this trail

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.

Wish the trails were a little better marked

Easy level trail. We brought our cat and she had no problems. Would be great for a trail run

Pretty much echo what others have said-weird location, nice view of the river, all paved and a flat weird loop. Probably wouldn’t do it again. I’m new to Delaware and wanted to try some different hiking spots, this is definitely not hiking but it’d be fine if you were just walking around especially with kids. They have little grills and picnic tables too

This trail was quite popular for good reason. Sun coming through the pines was breath taking. I made a note of the private camp sites. Beware! Port a Johns are a distance and water even further. Backpacking with a car! Sounds good to me. Longer trail and tent on list for the future. Bottom line, worth the drive from Wilmington!

Visit often. Close to my house, nice hike.
