Parking: Park on the north side of the road. This trailhead is on the south side of the road, opposite the parking. Good to Know: This trail can be hard to navigate! Download the map or memorize the turns! On the north side of the parking lot there is a loop that is over 11 miles, unlike this 4 mile loop. This trailhead is on the south side of the road, opposite the parking. Highlights: This trail had a blend of sun and shade, incline and decline, and vegetation. This loop could make a great trail run, whereas the other larger loop has lots of loose rock.

Foot traffic: Heavy in April
Parking: Lot found with directions from AllTrails. park on the north side of the road.
Good to Know: This trail can be hard to navigate! Download the map or memorize the turns! We got lost a few times because we took the trailhead on the north side of the parking lot. That loop is over 11 miles, we wanted the 4 mile loop. This trailhead is on the south side of the road, opposite the parking.
Highlights: This trail had a blend of sun and shade, incline and decline, and vegetation. This loop could make a great trail run, whereas the other larger loop has lots of loose rock.

Beautiful area, great day hike. Fairly difficult with incline most of the way and very windy. Lots of bikers. One important point of clarification - "Belcher Hill" is not really a loop trail itself. It is more so an area with tons of connecting trails, mainly the "Belcher Hill Trail" (separate AllTrails search result). We started what we thought would be a 4.1 m loop today which ended up being 7+ once we used other trails to get us back to the main parking lot. I'd definitely recommend getting a trail map and designing route ahead of time. Have never gotten lost before on a hike but this was a first for me.
