Shorter loop but a good bit of exercise in an hour.

Description

The Loggers Trail (Red) is a one of the shorter trails that the park could offered. You would enjoy great views and a good bit of exercise in an hour.

Start from the parking lot and run toward the Nature Center, then cross the bridge and turn right onto the red-blazed Loggers Trail. Turn right at the following T-intersection. In mid-July, keep your eyes peeled for a bunch of wild red berries growing just a few feet from the intersection. In less than a quarter mile, cross a gas pipeline path.

Once you pass the gas pipeline path, turn right and run along the pipeline. After a few hundred feet, the Logger Trail will turn to the left into the woods. Go straight and run a few feet and you'll pass the white-blazed Short Cut Trail. In another few hundred feet, you'll pass the yellow-blazed Ivy Hill Trail.

Less than a quarter mile, you'll meet blue-blazed Laurel trail on your left. Keep running.
You'll pass a green-blazed Virginia Pine Trail on your left.

Less than a quarter mile or so, yellow-blazed trail (again) on your right. Go straight on a few hundred feet and then turn left onto the Loggers Trail.

The old ski slope will be on your right, which affords beautiful views of the Hunt Valley.

Now descending a hill, continue running along the Logger Trail to cross another pipeline path and reach a large junction.

At the junction, turn left and run up hill for a few hundred feet and look for the orange-blazed Lake Trail on your right. Follow the orange-blazed trail to cross a bridge and head uphill, with the lake on your right side, to end near the parking lot where you started.

The tread is quite smooth near the trailhead of the Oregon Ridge Logger Trail.
