Starts and finishes at the beautiful Davidson River. Along the way you encounter some steep climbs, rutty roots, and twisty descents. At 7.5 miles this has become one of my favorite loops around Brevard.

Park at the Davidson River Campground / Art Loeb Trail
. Take the Art Loeb Trail
downstream, cross the river and make a left. You'll cross one more bridge and then the climbing begins. Enjoy the views along the ridge. The trail crosses a FS road, look across the road for the Art Loeb sign. Climb up along the ridge to the North Slope Connector, which will be a signed fork off to the right. You almost make a U-turn, so keep your eye out. Run down the North Slope Connector and make a left when you reach the North Slope Loop. Run back to Davidson River Campground. Jump in the river.
**It may be better to run it the other way, but navigation might be a little tougher if you aren't familiar with the area.
