“Craighead forest park's quintessential loop. A grand tour of the park.”
— Jamin Wright
Open 365 days a year, Craighead Forest Park opens at 6 am, closes at 10 pm.
From level trail to moderate climbs, a runner will find a little of everything CHP has to offer in this loop. A gentle climb meanders up the ridge from the trailhead. Then, settle in for a tour of trails on the interior of the park. Pay attention to stop signs on the trail - these mark road crossings (best to look both ways). Finishing up with the green loop extension, this section twists and turns its way back down the ridge via several bermed switchbacks.
This is a multi-use trail so be aware of your surroundings and of other users on the trail.
