“An easy but lovely run through the gorgeous Burr Oak Woods Conservation Area.”— Jason Doedderlein
There are several interconnecting trails. This is generally easy enough to follow but it always makes sense to bring this map or use the Trail Run Project mobile app to make sure you are tracking right. Those interconnecting trails also open up the possibility to do additional options and segments (though there will be no ultra running here...)
After a little over a mile, take a little connector trail to the left to reach the Hickory Grove Trail. From this junction, you'll take a left and run for another mile or so before crossing the parking area and hitting the Bethany Falls Trail.
This trail will take you up and around some lovely rock formations and through the forest and a meadow for the bulk of the elevation gain and loss on this run.
After finishing the Bethany Falls Trail, simply take the Hickory Grove Trail back to the parking area.
