Easy trail. Mostly shaded. Well used, there are a few places that the trail isn’t well marked, I just kept the pond in my right and kept walking!!

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.

Felt like mostly downhill, with one steep uphill in the second half, downhill was hard with dog.

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.

Easy trail with some good views and some open gravel sections. Anyone looking for a mostly flat walk with river, field and some woods walking.

This trail was a wonderful surprise. We hiked the trail starting at lot number 3 and took our time. Took us about three hours. We stopped and rested at the benches and took some great pictures. Bring plenty of water to drink and bring wet wipes in case you have girls who need to use the porta potty at the boat ramp that is close to the half way point. Highly recommend this trail.

some garbage around, & apparently some people dont pick up after their pets, smells in some areas but a close quick walk with the dog

Perfect for little kids. Just the right distance for a short hike. Great for dog walking and bike loops too. Can’t wait to return in the Fall for the beautiful colors.

Great level trail! Well marked with a good solid surface. Well maintained and no roots to worry about. Nice wooded scenery with a couple bridges to cross.

Really pretty and diverse. Not necessarily easy throughout, lots of fun.

Out to the big, old tree and back on a wide dirt, pebble, grass path (mostly dirt). We walked this shaded path during a hot, dry period and did not encounter mosuitos or flies, but this could easily change if this area was wet or damp. Seemed shorter than 2.2m ; be good for a run.

What a sweet woodsy kid-friendly loop - the AllTrails version of the loop isn’t the same as what’s marked on the trail, but there are multiple trails lining a creek valley so we just made our own loop.

Nice short walk. Nice views of Newark.

It's Sept. 2nd and the trail is a bit overgrown onto the gravel path (plenty of poison ivy) and into the 1/3 boardwalk section of this short looped trail One picnic table on path & 4 sturdy, relaxing benches on a well-made boardwalk with gr8 views of marshland. Loop is well marked throughout & overview map at trailhead. Long gravel car ride to get here. Don't wiz by in a sports car & get others dusty like an idiot. Annual DE state pass required or day fee of a few dollars.

Great relaxing ride, lots of places to go “off” trail for a “sesh”. Don’t go mid day, the earlier the better. Always a quick ride to up your heart rate, and clear your mind.

Mostly rocky and dirt. We didn’t follow the whole path just stayed on the path along the water. It was challenging wouldn’t call it easy. There’s a nice waterfall at the base where you can put your feet in :)
