Family Friendly This casual hike is great for kids to get out and enjoy the forest without a huge commit in difficulty or time.

Overview

A gentle hike that combines the marked Loop Trail with the East Loop to create a concise route that is great for casually exploring or squeezing in a hike when short on time.

Description

This is one of several options in the Scarlett-Mitchel Nature Area and the surrounding loops and spurs can easily be included to extend the mileage as hikers see fit.

Park at the Scarlett Middle School lot and enter the woods as designated by their sign. Continue straight and take the second right to begin this loop. Once the hike returns to the Loop Trail simply follow the signage where it appears at each intersection signpost. For the first third of a mile, the woods are open and clear, with a generous line of site. The middle portion weaves into denser growth and the end of the hike passes a pond and wetland before returning to the start.
