“A nice five-mile loop that can be trimmed to two-four miles as needed.”— Rob Cummings
Take the Lower Yellow Trail first and then head down the ravine to the bottom of the hill. Turn around and climb up the Blue Trail to the cliff view over the lake and continue to the end where the Blue Trail and Red Trail join up. Take the Red Trail down to the bridge back over the ravine stream back up the Upper Yellow Trail. This takes you back out to old Oregon Rd.
Take a right when you exit the Yellow Trail at Old Oregon Rd and head downhill. You'll pass meadows toward the bottom of the hill to your right. This is the Trump Seven Springs Estate. Don't head up the road (as you'll notice that the gate says no trespassing).
Instead, continue on Old Oregon to Upper Meyer Preserve (the western portion). Follow the trail over stone walls and through the woods uphill to the top of the Meadow Trail. Take the meadow trail down for about a half mile paralleling Sarles Street.
At the bottom, the trail joins up with Old Oregon Rd again. Climb that hill back to where you crossed the stone wall then head back up Old Oregon to the parking lot, making for a nice 5-mile hike with some hearty hills!
