Must take Coldwater to Gadsden and go L until you hit Butterfield and take another left in order to make this loop. Decent trail run through Coldwater and Butterfield gave the legs a good work out with lots of steep ups and downs. These two trails are good for running although it should get an overall 3 stars because Gadsden was not a good running trail and had lots of large rocks/boulders plus a lot of deep sand to try and run through. Keep an eye out for signs while on Gadsden because they are not as clearly marked as I think are needed.
