Description

The Coneflower Loop is a lovely, short little loop in the middle of the park in a beautiful open prairie grass section. The trail follows around the outer edge of the prairie, weaving in and out of the trees at a few points. It offers beautiful views and is easily doable for most people. Towards the southwest portion of the trail is a lone large tree with a little shelter underneath it, perfect for stopping and taking a rest.

Another cool portion that is fun to run along is the old road that cuts right through the loop, leading to the bridge that crosses over into the campground. This was the original road that led to the first lodge at the park, but has since stopped being used. Running along it gives a fun, abandoned feel, and also enables quick access to the campgrounds if you are done running.
