Runner Notes

This is a very runnable trail with a wide, smooth surface. There's some elevation gain, and it's steepest heading south from Saltzman Road, but either way, it's nothing crazy.

Description

This is one of the more popular trails in the park, and can get busy during peak times.

It's most common to enter from Saltzman Road. From there, you can head north towards NW Leif Erikson Drive Trail, which yields a gradual climb through the maple canopy, with good loop options. If you head south towards Wildwood Trail - National Scenic Trail, you'll have a steeper, but still moderate, ascent.

Flora & Fauna

This trail is named for the maple trees that line it on both sides. In the fall, the colors are remarkable, and in summer, the trees provide nice shade.
