Trail starts on the Green loop now that a paved parking lot has gone in on 10 Mile Rd. The Blue loop is the "hub" and the widest and flattest, great for beginners. When you are ready to add distance and challenge venture off on a "spoke" trail. Orange and/or Green Loops are next in difficulty followed by Black and Red. Intermediate runners can handle the distance of all the loops.

Luton Park is a multi-use trail system. There are a total of 8.5 miles of trail utilizing a stacked loop system with flatter beginner trails (the Blue and Green Loops) and tighter, hillier advanced trails (the Yellow, Orange, Red and Black Loops).
To cover all the loops and trails, make all right turns at intersections except when exiting the Black Loop. Small optional routes may have you making left turns in a few places. The area incorporates pines, meadows, hardwoods, marshes and three bridge crossings over Rum Creek.
Please avoid this trail after heavy rain due to the high clay content and low marsh areas near Rum Creek. Luton Park is closed to night running since all Kent County Parks are only open from dawn to dusk. The good news is that this area is closed to hunting but open to running, bikes and hiking all year long.
