This 3.2-mile loop begins at the parking lot near the observatory. Find the trailhead at the north side of the parking lot. Keep the forest on your left the entire time and you'll stay on the loop. There are several connecting trails along the way if you want to take a shortcut. Take the left fork every time you come to a fork if you want to stay on the long loop. The trail intersects the Turkey Hollow Trail
at the very end. Take the right fork here to head back to the parking lot and the end of the loop.
