“A scenic, occasionally steep loop that connects Davidson River Campground to the Art Loeb & North Slope.”— Wes D
The trail crosses a FS road **don't take the 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.
Continue down the North Slope Connector and make a left when you reach the North Slope Loop. This takes you downhill and back to the Davidson River.
Make your way back to the Davidson River Campground, passing the English Chapel and joining the Exercise Trail. Jump in the river. Stay on the Exercise Trail, heading downstream (river right) along the Davidson River. When you get to the bridge you are finished! To return to the parking lot, make a left on the road and cross the bridge.
