“An encompassing route through the Northlake Nature Center's multiple trails.”— Ben Rosenberg
Eventually there will be a turnoff for the South Loop Swamp Walk Bypass Trail. Follow this to a nice overlook of the swamp. This trail can be followed back to the South Loop Trail, or you can backtrack and follow the right-of-way. Make a left onto the South Loop Trail and follow the winding path through the woods enjoying several turn-offs for scenic points.
The South Loop Trail will exit back onto the right-of-way. A sharp left will put you back onto the North Loop Trail. Several hundred yards onto the new trail, turn left to follow the Savanna Lake Trail. The Savanna Lake Trail will re-merge with the North Loop Trail, which can be followed for quite some time. This trail will also open back up to the right-of-way.
From here, take a long straight, somewhat monotonous trek down the right-of-way to bring you back to the beginning.
