“An easy three day, two night trip at a casual pace or a long day run to explore all the trails in the area.”— Andrew Grachek
Eventually, you'll pass nearby Germantown and a gravel processing plant which will then pass by a horse ranch and into Twin Creek Metropark. Once inside the park, the Twin Valley Trail will follow the perimeter trails of the park. Continuing south, you'll cross Chamberlain Rd which will take you to the southernmost point of the trail and Twin Creek Metropark, where there is also another overnight campsite on this most southern loop (northeasterly on the Purple Trail).
Returning north, continue following the direction you took (clockwise, counter clockwise) through Twin Creek Metropark and back to the connection trail previously mentioned to enter Germantown Metropark. Once inside the park, this will be another loop and your most northern point of the run. The third overnight campsite is located off the Yellow Trail on a small westerly traveling connecting path.
