Outer Loop Trail, 5 Miles Red blazed

This trail more-or-less rings the park and it’s about 5 miles. The northern half of the trail is pretty woodsy and the very northernest northern tip takes in a nice beaver pond. The southern half of the loop (south of the Gay City Trail) is the most remote area within the park and hits some nice stands of pine and hemlock as well as a few pond overlooks and stream crossings.
