“Round Top Loop is one of the most popular trails in the park.”— Wendy Wheeler
Family Friendly Kids love the labyrinth, and the hike is easy.
From here, go back down to Round Top Loop Trail. The trail is a flat, wide fire road with a lot of medium-sized rocks. This part of the trail has no tree covering. It is easy to twist an ankle on the first 0.41 miles of the trail after the water tank (if you are not paying attention). Follow the signs to Quarry Pit (sign #2). You'll see a wooden fence at the top of the quarry. This is the best view of the labyrinth. I highly recommend going down into the quarry to hike through the labyrinth. From here, the trail loops back to the parking lot. This part of the trail is a really nice tree-lined singletrack.
For more information, you can check out the park website.
