Join the Yellow Trail by hiking up the Treetop Nature Trail. At the junction of the Treetop Nature Trail and the Yellow Trail head northeast on the Yellow Trail. On the Yellow Trail you will travel up and down hills and through valleys of the foothills. There are several stream crossings, both with and without small bridges. The first part of this hike does have a fairly steep climb but once you reach the top the rest of the hike is quite easy. Upon reaching the Yellow/White Connector, hike north and take the Red (Bike) Trail until it ends at Terrace Drive. Follow Terrace Drive back to the entrance of the Treetop Nature Trail to complete the loop.

Great trail, the first half was easy to moderate(mainly because of continuous semi-steep hills) the second half was easy and had very light slope but watch out for mountain bikers. Very pretty throughout the the actual trail part. There were a couple of downed trees along the first half of the trail. It was a little longer than advertised 4.3ish miles. “Warning you have to walk along the road to get back to the TreeTop entrance.”

Great hike - more like 4.5 miles though. Beautiful scenery with the streams and bridges. Definitely a do over.

Good loop. Nice adjacent streams. Once you are on Group Camp Road look for closed gate to parking lot. Seven Bridges Trail is just before gate but isn’t marked. Watch for bikes on this trail.

This was a very confusing situation. We went 5.5 miles and finally had to just walk on the road to get to the car because the park was about to close. It was probably about 7 miles rather than 3.6 as indicated. Beautiful terrain and more like 18 bridges rather than 7 as indicated. :-/. The last half was actually a bike trail that did not follow the path. It was a beautiful day though.
