less traveled trail that you can go out and back or loop around. I did a loop and enjoyed it very much. I was also able to see quite a bit of wildlife as well.

pretty little hike that is easy to access yet less traversed than Fat Man's Loop, which is nice. Connects to the Heart Trail/ Little Elden Trail, giving opportunity to continue hiking to higher altitudes. Enjoyed this pleasant hike and Heart Trail as well. Finished just before a thunderstorm hit! WHEW :)

Is a quick hike for short distance after work and before dark with connecting trails for some variety. Saw herd of deer and got within 15 yards last night. I enjoy this trail frequently along with Fatman's Loop.

Easy trail for a short walk run or hike. Great connector to several trails such as hearts or christmas tree. climbs about 500 feet. Connects up with Christmas Tree Trail which takes you to Fatman's Loop or go right and you can take the junction trail that hooks you up with Hearts and/or Little Elden Trail. I like this hike is better in July after all the rain and the blooming of the forest. Lots of green to look at, lots of horned toads, lizards, deer and elk and some of the better views of the inner bowl of the Mount Elden Mountain range. Out and back 2.8 miles
