“A flat, mostly-gravel loop with cool wildlife.”— Pete Sunden
Keep right at the trail's fork near the Quebec/2 intersection, back on gravel for the majority of the run. Expect some gentle slopes. The northern and eastern sides offer some wildlife-viewing potential. Once you're heading south, you'll eventually wind up on the unmaintained Buckley Road.
After returning right at the parking lot near Pena Blvd on 56th Ave, you'll want to work your way to the opposite side of the road. You'll have some time on a wide, dirt shoulder that will eventually disappear. On the "wrong direction of travel" if running west, there's a broad paved sidewalk. Continuing, take 56th Ave to Central Park Blvd and turn right.
Overall, a nice and easy loop. Keep an eye out for birds of prey and large land mammals.
