Runner Notes

Some muddy wet terrain for parts of the trail.

Description

This trail is most useful for making a large outer loop of the entire natural area. Off of the Hidden Hill Trail look for the green trail markers and turn right on this trail. You start off in some swampy lowlands and slowly head uphill until you meet up with the Homestead Trail. Take a right here to continue on the outer loop.
