Trail shared by Nathan McKerley

A peaceful loop through dense vegetation and clear woods.

Nathan McKerley

Features -none-

Overview

A gentle run that combines the marked Loop Trail with the East Loop to create a concise route that is great for casually exploring or squeezing in a run when short on time.

Runner Notes

Consider taller socks due to the prevalence of plant growth during the middle portion of the run. Otherwise, the trail is clear and not too technical.

Description

This is one of several options in the Scarlett-Mitchel Nature Area and the surrounding loops and spurs can easily be included to extend the mileage as runners see fit.

Park at the Scarlett Middle School lot and enter the woods as designated by their sign. Continue straight and take the second right to begin this loop. Once the run returns to the Loop Trail simply follow the signage where it appears at each intersection signpost. For the first third of a mile, the woods are open and clear, with a generous line of site. The middle portion weaves into denser growth and the end of the run passes a pond and wetland before returning to the start.
