“A nice 6-mile loop around the eastern side of Mt. Gretna.”— Adam L
Further out along Trail 8, will be the observation tower atop Governor Dick Hill. The entire series of trails is by and large, very rocky, though there are moments where it becomes a nice double wide trail. Bikes and horses are allowed on several of these trails.
The return leg of the loop along Trail #15 is fairly light and easy as it is at the foot of the hill and mostly descending. This is where you'll find several bouldering areas as well.
