This loop is comprised of Valley View Road, Idiot's Run, Oaks Way, and Horton's Loop, and is a part of the greater Liberty Mountain Trail System. Limited parking is available at the start of this route (bottom of the hill) and ample parking is available at the top. Recommended to start at the bottom and go clockwise. It is a well-maintained trailrunning route, but beware, it is a brutal climb up in the first half. It is generally a gentle climb until the end, where you have to tackle a some sobering switchbacks. The trail back on Valley View Road, however, is a very easy run back and makes for a nice finish. About 3.25 miles in total.Show more
