Overview

This run is a great tour of most of the trails at Knob Noster State Park.

Description

This run combines the Hawk Nest Trail in the Clearfork Woodland area, the Lake Buteo Trail, the Campground Loop at the special use area that is all gravel, and the North Loop Trail that loops around the campground. The entire run (minus the special use gravel) is a dirt path, with roots and rocks which is very similar to all of the other trails in the park. This run does not include the Clearfork Woodland 0.5-mile loop or the 0.7-mile Discovery Trail, but these two trails can be easily added on if you are wanting to add some mileage or variety to your run.
