“An easy, quiet lollipop loop from Kemper Park to the Secluded Farm area.”— Zander Göpfert
Continue southwest on the Lower Meadow Trail as it stretches towards the Upper Meadow Trail. In the warmer months, the vegetation and foliage can be thick with plants sometimes trying to sprout in the middle of the trail. Stay with the Upper Meadow Trail as it bends to the left (east), crossing on the Upper Meadow Trail Bypass into the long grass meadow. This is a nice clearing that provides respite from the sometimes claustrophobic forest.
This section of trail is on mowed grass. Be aware of ticks and mowed poison ivy. It's worth washing your hands once you've taken your shoes off later in the day. At the northeast corner of the meadow, the trail splits. Head left (north) back in the woods to The John and Clara Smart Trail.
This trail merges returns to the Lower Meadow Trail from whence you came. Follow the route back to the north through Kemper Park and the Route 20 parking area.
