Need to Know

The Historic Town of Rugby has a cafe called the Harrow Road Cafe. You can find the information if you Google historic Rugby's website. Rugby also has a number of house vacation rentals. Brook's General Store is at the other end of town, and they have great food options, as well as a campground with bathroom/shower houses and hookups.

Description

This trail is accessed off of the Cox Branch Trail. You'll see signs for Kellogg Loop Trail that will take you onto a newer bridge over the creek. From this point, you'll need to look for bright green flags, eye-height, on the trees to take you around the loop.

This trail is in the Rugby State Natural Area and is maintained by the locals, like all of the Rugby trails.

About three-quarters of the way around the loop, you'll find "Kellogg's Crack." Feel free to adventure down the crack, and you can even go into the large rocks through a crack to the other side.

In the fall, the trail is covered with leaves, and there are some spots with smaller rocks and roots that could trip you up.

Make sure to watch for the trail posts/signs as you'll cross over an old road bed, which is not part of the trail.
