“A short paved loop at the entrance of Penitentiary Glen Reservation.”— Steve Creech
At the southern point of the loop, you'll come to junctions with a paved spur to an overlook of Penitentiary Glen and the purple blazed Halle Home Trail (which connects you to Red Fox Loop Trail). Continuing clockwise, you'll be among the trees and shade.
Just before crossing the bridge between two ponds is a short spur to the Outdoor Classroom, Wildlife Center, and Nature Center. After the bridge, you'll return to the start of your loop and the parking lot. The Glen Meadow Loop Trail can easily be combined into a longer run by connecting it to several nearby trails.
The trail is also open to bikers. Keep your eyes and ears open for bikers speeding along. The trail is popular, so please be friendly and say "hi" to everyone else out enjoying the Metroparks!
