Overview

The Perimeter Loop is a pleasant trail that gently gains elevation on the west side of the park as it follows a mix of singletrack and doubletrack. The trail's foreground of scattered shrubs isn't too exciting, but the background is pleasantly framed by tall hills on one side and the sprawling city on the other.

The Perimeter Loop can be accessed from various parking areas, other trails, and nearby neighborhoods. The bottom of the loop overlaps the South Park Loop and the Mia Vista Trail.
