    Douglas Kuhn saved Orange Trail

    This was a good loop that had a bit of everything you would expect while backpacking. A few downed trees, a couple poorly marked blazes, a trail washout, water crossings, mud, hills, and of course...ticks. All in all I really enjoyed the trail. If you are preparing for longer hike or just wanting to hike for exercise, this is a great trail. If you are wanting beautiful views or an easy stroll, it would be better if you chose a different trail. I would suggest walking clockwise, left, south from the trailhead. It has the best blazing.

    I enjoy this trail. It isn't the largest area or longest trail, but it is a beautiful escape into the woods. They recently did controlled burns which opened up the undergrowth a bit and made the trail even nicer.

    Short loop through the woods. The trail curves downhill toward a creek and pond, crosses the creek (muddy after recent rain), then back up hill to the start. My GPS maps the loop just shy of .75 mile. Only major downfall to this hike is parking. Roadside parking only has room for two vehicles.

    This is the best hiking trail in the area. It has a lot of elevation changes, good pathways, and an awesome overlook as a reward. I prefer parking in Valmeyer near the post office and starting my loop from the trailhead just south of St Johns UCC. If you start at the church go to the steep climb up the bluffs, jump over to Salt Lick trail, then loop around on Johnson Trail and back to Valmeyer, you will hile just over 7 miles (all very clearly marked...you cannot get lost). My 12 and 14 year old made it without complaints, so while a hard hike due to a few steep climbs, it isn't overly difficult.

    I feel this is the best way to start your hike at Salt Lick. It is an easy flat trail along the base of the bluffs through tall trees and along huge boulders. It ends at Newman trail or a steep connector trail to Salt Lick. If you start here, do the out and back to Newman Trailhead then up to Salt Lick and do half of its loop, you will get about 5.5ish miles with beautiful trails through the woods, crossing streams, the steep climbs along the bluffs. This is by far the best trifecta of trails around the StL area.
