A great trail that allows for a loop through the park.

Description

The Merry-Go-Round Trail is a wide trail that climbs along the east side of the park to a great viewing area. On the way up it connects with the Ridge Trail, Old Mine Trail, and Tie Camp Trail before continuing for another half-mile to end at the Loop Trail. Most of it is shaded except for a large clear area at the top of a ridge where you'll find some nice vistas.
