This is a loop (the middle section overlaps a bit the way the trail is blazed) in the Gnome Hollow Preserve. In this section, there is a connecting Orange trail that takes you to the neighboring Frelinghusen Forest Preserve. The section of the trail near the parking area, closest Stillwater Road was not quite as well blazed nor is there as well defined 'beaten path'.

3/27/2020. We hike the Gnome and the Orange trail just to extend the walk in this March sunny 61 degree day. When Orange crosses yellow it hard to spy where that orange continues as it is not directly across it. The way we walked it orange trail took you to the lake and the building. The park map showed the trail goes behind the building but it’s tight and no markers but we did it. We wondered in the direction we knew we had to go and stumbled upon orange again. Orange back to yellow and back to the Jeep. We found 3 gnomes hidden along the way. Cute
