“A very well-maintained trail circumscribing the Washington Duke golf course.”— Mikhaila Redovian
If you take the loop in a clockwise direction (opposite the signposts), you'll cross over a bridge near mile marker 2, and you can take a left at that point to add on the Sally Meyerhoff Fitness Loop, which is about another 1k to 3/4 mile. There are exercise stations along this loop if you want to test your balance or do some other workouts.
When you return to the Al Buehler Trail, you'll continue over some mild rises until you near mile marker 1.5, where you climb up a bit, going behind one of the golf tees. The drop back down is even more dramatic and then you'll cross over two small bridges in rapid succession before reaching the 1 mile marker. From there, it's a quick jaunt back to the start of the loop, and your vehicle.
