“A beautiful and quiet loop on a mix of singletrack and fire road through old forest and swamp.”— Zander Göpfert
After just under a half mile, continue onto the Ameri-Trail, which continues in the same way through a beautiful forest on the edge of an old swamp.
The Ameri-Trail will eventually bend to the left (east) until it links up with 5 Mile Rd.
5 Mile Road is closed to vehicles for this southern portion and provides access to Lake Isabel. It will head back north toward the Nature Center parking area and the start of the loop.
Overall, this is a lovely loop, and though it is fairly long, there is little to no elevation to worry about.
