“An eight-mile loop route that's popular with local trail-seekers.”— Todd Johnson
This portion of the route is the most idyllic. The Nature Trail meanders along and crisscrosses a stream briefly before heading up a steep hill to dead end at the Wildwood Trail - National Recreation Trail. At the intersection you'll find a clearing with a picnic table.
You'll work along the Wildwood Trail - National Recreation Trail another four-plus miles, then take a left onto Wild Cherry Trail. Wildwood and Wild Cherry are both singletrack trails through dense woods. Trees fallen across these trails are not uncommon.
Wild Cherry will bring you back to Leif at the portapotty about a quarter mile from where you started; take a right and continue on back to the gate.
