Trail shared by John Shuttlesworth

A nice loop that offers more opportunity for solitude and encounters with nature.

Description

This loops begins on the Spring Creek Trail at the bridge that passes over the creek. The bridge offers great views of the deep cut banks of Spring Creek. The trail passes through mostly wooded areas with many of the same highlights and features of the Spring Creek Trail. At the southernmost point of the loop there is a nice picnic area with several tables and even a random horseshoe pit available for those that want to stop and test their skill. It then loops back around and winds back through the forest to the point of origin on the bridge. This is a great trail to extend the nature area experience.
