Description

There are very few trail signs, so you may never know which trail you are on. For this route, complete the following trails in one run: take Fox Run Trail to part of Shagbark Loop Trail. At the far end of Shagbark Loop Trail, turn on to Blue Stem Trail. Follow Blue Stem Trail around and then reconnect with Shagbark Loop Trail, which you'll take back to where it meets Fox Run Trail. Instead of taking Fox Run Trail, continue on Shagbark Loop Trail until you reach the central parking and play area.

This route is located in Blues Creek Preserve (a County Park), in Delaware, Ohio.
