Runner Notes

Footing is generally easy but the hill is constant and somewhat steep.

Description

The Hairpin Loop is an appropriately named trail that connects to the Core Loop as part of the Michigan Tech trail system. The trail drops straight down into a river valley and then turns around and heads straight back up the hill.

There are nice views of the river valley at the bottom and a fault-line creek located at the bottom of a steep ravine that runs along the trail on the way back up. The trail is about 6 meters wide, and is a mowed grass trail, so it's not terribly technical. This route is used for cross-country skiing in the winter.

Flora & Fauna

I regularly see deer on this trail.
