Mt. Gretna Loop

Overview

Trail #13 is a nice loop with some small rock gardens. This makes for a good short hike from the lower parking lot and back using Trail #5 as the connector. On the more western side, this trail goes by a large hill that this trail circles, but there are a few bouldering opportunities here, if you're feeling like traveling vertically. It could also be considered a preview or practice for Trail #15. The trail has a few rock gardens, but they are much smaller and easier to navigate than what you'll find on Trail #15.
