“A nice series of trails in beautiful woods with a babbling creek to serenade you on your run.”— Bree West
Once you pass marker #12, be on the lookout for a narrow trail off to the right, which will take you on the upper loop. Don't let the picture on the trail guide fool you—Loop A is not a flat oval like the picture might lead you to believe. It's a steep-ish climb with lots of switchbacks taking you towards the top of the giant trees in the forrest (I am a running novice and got a little intimidated at first, but it was worth it and totally doable).
Be on the lookout for a couple of small downed trees that you'll either have to climb over or under. Dogs will easily go under both, while people may be more comfortable going over the first one and under the second one. These may be cleared away as we get closer to the busy season.
Once you reach the top, you begin the descent, which also includes a bunch of switchbacks. As you get closer to the bottom the creek becomes a more prominent soundtrack. There is a nice lookout point towards the bottom as well. You'll pop back out onto the nice flat path to finish the nature loop and head back across the bridge to where you started.
