“A good introduction to the Palos West system.”— Dave Caldwell
Start at the Bullfrog Lake parking area and head out on the Blue Trail North. A bigger downhill leads you to the intersection of the Green Trail. Take the right fork at the Green Trail along a wide horse path to another fork with the Orange Loop. Take the right fork again and the trail switches back to singletrack.
Keep following the Orange Loop all the way to Wolf Road Woods parking area and through the picnic area to the horse trail section of the Orange Loop. Follow the orange trail to another fork where you'll take the right fork to the Green Trail. Follow the singletrack down a grassy hill back to the Bullfrog Lake parking area.
This area has a lot of mountain bike traffic, so be vigilant as bikers may be coming from either direction.
