Trail shared by Kevin Ketchman

A fast loop on the eastern border of Hartwood Acres.

Features Fall Colors

Description

The trail is accessed from the Hartwood Acres Purple Loop near the mansion parking lot. Starting south you'll follow the purple loop for a few hundred feet before jumping across the road/walking path and continuing the Orange Loop.

The trail is smooth with a dip into a valley and a climb back out but not terribly challenging. You'll poke out of the woods for a brief period, and on a hot summer day it feels like jumping into and then out of a furnace.

Connected to the Orange Loop is the White Loop.
