McGunn is a rooty, rock excursion along McGunn Creek, with a good climb out.

Overview

Trails are open to bikes and foot traffic.

Description

McGunn Creek Loop leaves Lakeview Loop to skirt a ridge above the McGunn Creek valley, drops down a small side valley in a sweet sweeping turn, climbs again to the ridge with overlooks of the creek amid numerous protruding glacial popple rocks, swings away for the creek to entertain a mix of small woods and old fields, turning back to the creek and descending a steep bench to ravine floor. Be sure to stop at the bottom of the hill at the bench overlooking the small waterfall there.

Then continue running upstream along the creek, with more rock, up a steep narrow bench where the creek cuts into the hillside, then rolling back down to the creek where it widens up a bit across from the township waste water treatment plant out of sight across the ravine (if the wind is wrong, that's what you smell). The climb continues as it rises above the stream until it delivers you back to the rim of the valley. From there the trail becomes more rolling as it skirts the rim gently downhill to the its start and the intersection with Lakeview.
