“This loop combines the varied terrain of several trails to make a great longer run.”— Russell Hobart
Turn right onto the Walker Trail, and go a mile until you find another turn off for the Peaks Loop. Turn right and continue half a mile to where you cut right toward the parking lot. When you hit the road, continue left for 100' or so until you are in the parking lot, and you can start the Holman Loop. This goes through the prairie and has lots of educational signs. Go .6 miles on until you hit Hart Trail and stay right.
Once you complete the .5 miles of Hart Trail, you'll turn right onto the Justice Loop. After .8 miles, you'll be back at the gravel road. Turn left and look to your right for the Walker Trail. In a little over a mile, you'll be back at the intersection for the Jordan Trail. Go right and you'll be back at the beginning.
The Cliff Notes version: Always turn right when you're at a trail junction. Always turn left when you hit a road and look right for the trail. The trails are all well shaded, and you'll enjoy some great scenery along the way.
