We've done this trail many times, winter through summer. There are some great hills and a valley that leads to the nature center. We end up on the bridal trail and near the end of the hike there is a very steep hill! Several creeks to cross and hills to climb. We love it! We veer off the trail some to catch the bridal trail because it presents more of a challenge. If you do the trail backwards, counter clockwise, there are more uphills than downhills.

It's probably the time in here, but a very muddy trail. The Nature Center was a nice sidetrack.

Fun Little day hike. I did this loop and where the Buckeye trail branches off i followed it out to the towpath to the chippewa bridge to take some pictures. Then headed back and finished the loop. Added maybe 3 miles to the day but it was well worth it. The loop by itself would be maybe a bit lackluster as the feature was not what i was expecting. would do it again though with family or friends. Would be a good trail run as well.

Great trail! Very well marked, scenic, great elevation to break up the flat parts.
