I'm sorry, at the base of the hill turn right and go along the swamp, oops.

There's one more loop option I didn't think of. At the base of the hill turn left, go along the swamp and into the woods and take your first right up the hill. It will go back to the original trail.

I hate to write a review of this because this is such a nice peaceful trail where I seldom run into anyone, which is great when you have dogs. I used this trail hundreds of times when I had a Siberian Husky pulling me on a Canadian Kick Sled and a dog scooter. It was 1 mile mostly down hill. It can be a round trip if you're familiar with the trails here, in fact there are a few loop options, 3 total that I know of offhand. It's fun trying to figure out the history of the place. It looks like an old country road with broken asphalt paving. There are pretty views off to the east as you come down the hill, particularly in the winter. It's a regular trail for me. If you turn left at the base of the hill, take the trail past a little pond to its end, turn left alongside the field, then turn left up hill into the woods (this is actually the continuation of same road you started on) and you'll loop back towards the original road. Also if you turn right instead of going into the woods and continue along the edge of the field into the woods you'll find 2 trails going uphill either of which end at a trail at the top of the hill. Take a left and you'll be back on the original road. These 2 are a lot longer.
